Kicked-Up Cole Slaw

This cole slaw is marvelous.  Don’t be fooled by the amount of garlic powder–it’s not a typo.  It uses a lot, but the taste is divine.

  • 5-6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs water
  • 2 tbs cider vinegar
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Place shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl.
  • Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over cabbage and mix well to coat. Coleslaw may appear "dry," but water will release as it sets (pickles).
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. The longer it sits, the more it "pickles" and there will be plenty of juice.
  • Serves 8-10 as a side dish
