This light and creamy coleslaw recipe is easy to make and goes well alongside almost any type of bbq or summer meal. 

If you’re anything like me, you prefer your coleslaw light. Not to say I don’t like those creamy coleslaw at all, cause I do. I just have to make it myself, because I find the store bought variety is way to sweet. 

There are a few ways to make coleslaw as you know, and this is one of my favorite varieties. If your looking for a more sweet and creamy coleslaw, then check out my Creamy Coleslaw Salad recipe. 

This recipe here is very similar to my Creamy coleslaw recipe, however has half the mayo with the addition of a little Horseradish, and Whole Grain Dijon Mustard . 

These extra two ingredients alone give a bit of ‘kick’ to the regular creamy type coleslaw salad. Coleslaw makes the perfect accompaniment to a meal or can be eaten as is.

In summer when I have fresh herbs in the garden, I like to add just a tiny bit of chopped parsley or chives too.


  1. For the Coleslaw: In a large bowl, combine cabbage and carrots  (or empty your bag of cabbage carrot mixture into the bowl).
  2. For the Dressing: In a smaller bowl, make the dressing by combining your mayonnaise, horseradish, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, celery salt, sugar, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Slowly add the dressing into cabbage mixture until you have the desired amount, taste as you go. Let this chill in the fridge up to one hour to let the dressing marinate.

You may need less dressing, depending on how much cabbage your using.

Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.

The key is to let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours BEFORE serving, this lets the slaw set. Serve along side any summer dish and or double the recipe and make for a crowd.
