"Better than that famous chicken restaurant chain, I promise. Mix together and pour over grated or diced cabbage. Keeps in the fridge for several weeks because of the vinegar."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
1 (32 ounce) jar
mayonnaise (such as Best Foods®)
prepared yellow mustard
salt, or to taste
Very good! I found it to taste best when freshly made. It was still very good when chilled but it will lose some of that crunch.
without the mustard - much better!
I used the available option to change serving size to 6. I followed the directions and changed nothing (except the serving size), and it is just right for the tastebuds in my family. I placed the dressing in a large mixing bowl. I had a whole head of cabbage to work with, so I shredded the whole head, and added cabbage to the dressing in the bowl till it suited my taste. I refrigerated the slaw for several hours, and checked for "soupiness". The dressing was a little runnier than before, which is quite normal for slaw dressing made at home, so I added more shredded cabbage. As a note: salt and sugar break down the cellular walls in fresh produce, and make stuff begin to "weep". This is well noticed when you sprinkle fresh strawberries with sugar, or fresh cucumbers with salt. So, yes, the sugar and the salt make the cabbage "weepy", but this is normal for coleslaw. This is a great recipe for homemade slaw dressing.
Great recipe. Nice and simple. I had to make a smaller batch and the mustard is a nice touch.
Easy, quick & all ingredients on hand. Reduced recipe to 1 1/2 T sugar, 1 T cider vinegar, 1/3 c mayo (maybe more), 1 t mustard (more to taste), 1 t celery seed and kosher salt to taste.
This is Fabulous!! Tastes so much like "famous chicken fast food" slaw dressing. I adjusted servings for four - only used a heaping 1/4 cup mayo making this very economical - was enough for medium size cabbage, carrots, red onion slaw. Didn't have any celery seed - didn't miss it either! Thanks for sharing!
I hate giving out a five star rating. It implies that there is no room for improvement. Really, this recipe doesn't need improvement. As long as you are careful about the amount of dressing you use on the slaw, it is fool proof. The recipe as it stands makes enough dressing to float a Reagan class aircraft carrier. On the bright side, it will keep for a week or two in a tightly closed mason jar in the fridge. I've made this several times and it is perfect as is, but you can add dill weed, anise seed and cayenne pepper and give it a slightly different attitude. But you don't really need to make changes to it.
This has become a family favorite. I always make the full recipe, to have an extra pint for a friend and one in the refrigerator. To me, this is just a great all around dressing! I love it on a tossed salad, it's a great marinade for chicken and I have a pork roast in a bag with some right now. Give it a try, I stick to the recipe because it works for me.
