Easy Coleslaw Recipe for People Who Hate Coleslaw

You know how some coleslaw recipes are too goopy or too dry or too "blah"? My Sexy Nerd used to insist he hated all coleslaw...until he tried this.

Not too goopy or too dry or too blah? Check!

Thanks to food blogger Reeni, whose Honey Lime Dressing recipe inspired this. It helped jazz up my usual coleslaw recipe with tangy sweetness. The shredded coconut and pumpkin seeds elevate it above the coleslaw slop you get from KFC.

Not that their coleslaw slop isn't tasty (actually, SN insists it is not at all tasty), but we're going the homemade (with love!) route with this coleslaw recipe.

Easy Coleslaw Recipe for People Who Hate Coleslaw


1/3 C Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
1/3 C sour cream or plain yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp brown mustard
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp lime juice

1/3 of a green cabbage, shredded
1/3 of a red cabbage, shredded
1 large carrot, shredded
1 celery stalk, diced
1/4 C shredded coconut, toasted
1/4 C pumpkin seeds
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large container with a lid. Cover and shake well until combined. Add the remaining ingredients. Re-cover and re-shake.

You can enjoy this right away, but it tastes even better if you let it mellow in the fridge for an hour. I'm not patient at all (in fact, my blog's tagline used to be "patience has no place in my kitchen"), so I usually have a little now and the rest later.

Does this look like a Sexy Nerd who doesn't like coleslaw? Even he cannot resist the awesome combination of veggies & dressing.

On a side note, isn't he great for letting me take a photo of him while he tries to relax in his pajamas? He knew I was going to put this online...I think...

On yet another side note, I just noticed that Sexy Nerd's robe matches the lamp shade. Ha!
