🥒Ingredients For Dill Pickle Coleslaw

  • Coleslaw Mix or Shredded Cabbage: Coleslaw mix is made of shredded cabbage, usually both purple and green as well as shredded carrots. You could use just shredded cabbage, but the mix is more colorful and crunchy. 
  • Mayonnaise: Used in the making of any classic coleslaw dressing. Use store bought or make this easy one minute mayonnaise recipe.
  • Chopped Dill Pickles: Adds a tangy crunch throughout the coleslaw that cuts through the sweetness.
  • Pickle Juice: Add this straight from the jar! This will soak into the coleslaw mix for a nice pickle flavor. 
  • Fresh Dill: This herb really adds another level of flavor that compliments the pickle flavor. 
  • Sugar or Sweetener: Traditionally, coleslaw has a slightly sweet taste to it which definitely works in this recipe. You could use regular sugar or a sugar substitute if you have dietary restrictions. 

🥑Make it without sugar

If you are on a sugar free or keto diet, you can absolutely still make this coleslaw. Simply swap out the white granulated sugar with a sugar substitute such as Erythritol or a Monkfruit Sweetener. You can also omit the sweetener completely like in this classic Whole30 coleslaw recipe .

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Coleslaw Mix bagged shredded cabbage & carrots
  • cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Sugar or Sweetener
  • cup Dill Pickles chopped
  • ¼ cup Dill Pickle Juice
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Add Ingredients To A Bowl: In a large bowl, add coleslaw mix, chopped dill pickles, pickle juice, mayo, dill, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Toss Until Combined: Toss everything together until fully combined. If you enjoy a stronger pickle or dill flavor, feel free to add in more chopped pickles or fresh dill.
  • Chill In Fridge: Before serving, chill coleslaw in the fridge for about 2 hours to let all the flavors marinate. This is why making coleslaw ahead of time is the best way to do it. Serve cold.

Notes

❄️Storing & Making Ahead

You can prepare coleslaw up to 2 days ahead for optimal freshness. It lasts for 3-5 days in the refrigerator but it will get soggy over time. Toss each time you serve it and drain any excess liquid from the container that forms at the bottom. Store it in an airtight container to maintain its crunch and flavor.

  1. This sounds delicious! Any suggestions for a mayo replacement in these types of salad recipes? Egg allergy. 😕 Ana I’m not a fan of vegan mayo.
