Creamy Coleslaw Dressing

Slaw Dressing

5 from 18 reviews

A quick and easy, creamy, best Coleslaw Dressing that is delicious on shredded cabbage salad, as a condiment on sandwiches and wraps, on cold pasta salad, and as a dipping sauce.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 23 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 12 teaspoons lemon juice (to taste)
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  1. Whisk together the mayo, sugar, milk, cider vinegar, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to drizzle over your favorite slaw or up to 5 days.


  • The amount of sugar can be reduced to taste.
  • I love apple cider vinegar with this recipe, but you can substitute white vinegar, rice vinegar, champagne vinegar, or white wine vinegar.
  • For optimal flavor, use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • Other ingredients to add include celery seed or fresh dill.
  • Store the coleslaw dressing in a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid or an airtight container for up to 5 days, provided the mayo and milk were not expired or close to expiration.
  • I do not recommend freezing any dressing with a mayonnaise base. Mayo curdles and separates after it is frozen.
