Best Homemade Coleslaw Recipe

The best homemade coleslaw recipe I have is easier than you think. Try it this weekend with my Pork with Ranch BBQ recipe. Quick to fix with a “ready to prepare” bag of coleslaw mix from the grocer and just a few on-hand ingredients make this a must-have for cookouts & family gatherings!

This is the best homemade coleslaw. I use it often on pulled pork sandwiches and I try to have it handy for outdoor family BBQs. The homemade dressing gives it a much better flavor than store-bought dressing and it doesn’t have all the ingredients you can’t pronounce in it as many bottled dressings have!


  • 1 – 16oz bag of coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion (I use dried)
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Pour coleslaw mix in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until blended thoroughly.
  3. Pour dressing mixture over mix & toss to coat.
  4. Chill for a couple of hours before serving.
