  • Add mayonnaise, sugar, milk, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, celery seed and pepper to a measuring cup and whisk together dressing.
  • Place coleslaw mix in a container or baggie.
  • Pour coleslaw dressing over coleslaw mix and combine well. Place in refrigerator for a few hours, so that the cabbage/carrots absorb the dressing.


If you do not have celery seed, just leave it out. It's still super delish.


  • Honey can be used in place of white sugar.
  • Apple cider vinegar can be used in place of white vinegar.
