Sweet, Creamy and Crunchy Coleslaw

I am so excited to share this new coleslaw recipe of mine that I am already famous for – and I only created it 4 days ago. LOL!  This has been requested to be made THREE times in the last week.  We've had it for dinner as a side dish, I have taken it for lunch to top my salads and it has just been eaten as a snack with crackers.  It's THAT good. This is seriously the most delicious, creamy, crunchy and flavorful coleslaw that I have ever eaten.  And I have had my fair share of coleslaw.  This is one of the few dishes that I've made that was this simple yet oh so flavorful.  By adding heavy whipping cream to the dressing, the coleslaw gets so insanely rich and creamy.  Not to be confused with slimy or runny – which sadly, can be said for many prepared coleslaw dishes.  But not this one!

Here is what I did!

Ingredients

1 bag of Coleslaw Mix {you can choose to shred your own cabbage but it is much easier to just grab a bag in the produce section!}
1 bag of Broccoli Slaw
6 Scallions {green onions}, Chopped
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Heaping Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 Heaping Teaspoon Celery Seed
Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
4 Heaping Tablespoons Sugar {I actually used 5 packets of Splenda and it was perfect!}
Juice from 1 Lemon
2 Heaping Tablespoons Dried Parsley

 

{Add your shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix, broccoli slaw and chopped green onions to a large mixing bowl. The broccoli slaw can be an optional ingredient if you wanted to go more traditional and just use cabbage.  But it adds such a good CRUNCH so I highly recommend it!}

{In a separate small bowl, make the dressing by adding the mayonnaise, heavy cream, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, dried oregano, celery seed, sugar, salt and pepper}

{Wisk this really well to combine and to slightly whip the cream.  The heavy cream is a key ingredient in this dish. It makes the coleslaw unbelievably creamy!}

{Add your mixed dressing to the bowl of cabbage, broccoli slaw and green onions.  To that bowl, add in the juice of one lemon.}

{...and the dried parsley.}


{Mix, mix and mix to coat every piece.  Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper, if needed. If it seems "dry" at first, that's totally fine. The dressing will loosen a bit as this sits in the fridge.}

{Serve it up and enjoy!}
 
{We had this on Sunday with fried fish and roasted Brussels sprouts, which was such a fantastic dinner!  I have also been bringing it to lunch this week to top my salad.  The flavor is amazing and the longer it sits, the better it gets.  I can see me making this every single week when grilling seasons begins. Hot and spicy ribs with this sweet and creamy coleslaw? Oh, I CANNOT wait!
 
Let me know if you plan on trying this!
