Mr. Food:Country Coleslaw

Good old-fashioned coleslaw is great any time of the year and goes along with almost any dish. When we’re craving a creamy, mayonnaise-based coleslaw we make our Country Coleslaw recipe. It’s an easy coleslaw recipe that the whole gang’ll love!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups shredded cabbage (see Note)
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped or thinly sliced green bell pepper

What to Do


  1. In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar, and salt. Add cabbage, carrots, and green pepper; toss to coat well.
  2. Cover and chill until ready to serve.




  • A small head of cabbage yields about 8 cups. You can find pre-shredded cabbage at your market, but it’s simple and budget-friendly to do it yourself!
