Sweet Coleslaw

Do you just love that restaurant style coleslaw?  Well, this is definitely a wonderful version of it; however this one is homemade!

I made this coleslaw to go with our fish dinner; however, I think this may be a staple at cookouts from now on!  This recipe was adapted from the Sweet Slaw on All Recipes.

Sweet Coleslaw

  • 2/3 Cup Mayonnaise

  • 1 Tbsp White Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Sweet Dill Relish


  1. Simply mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

    I really love cole slaw, but I always add black pepper to mine! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I made this for dinner tonight. I love relish as a secret ingredient for sweetening and crunching up a dish. If I put relish on the table, no one but me eats it. But if i sneak it into tuna salad or like this coleslaw, it’ll sure to be a hit. I only put 1 tbsp veg oil and next time I’ll probably omit sugar altogether cause I think the relish sweetens it enough I kept eating it out of the bowl after mixing, it’s so good! Thanks Kristy for sharing.
