Sweet & Spicy Coleslaw

This is my go to coleslaw recipe for any day.  Make the dressing the day before so the sugars can break down.

If you wish to shred your own slaw, free free to experiment with texture and color! Try Brussels sprouts, carrots, green cabbage, red cabbage, onion  or even a little apple!   


  • 1 standard bag coleslaw mix, shredded
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup country style mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
  • fresh ground black pepper


  1. In a non-metal mixing bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, apple cider vinegar, distilled white vinegar, sugar, cayenne pepper and fresh ground black pepper.    Cover and refrigerate overnight. 

  2. About an hour before serving, mix the dressing with the coleslaw and keep refrigerated until serving.
