- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and honey (or maple syrup).
Add celery seed to the mixture. This adds a delightful flavor and texture to the dressing.
Season the dressing with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Start with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper, and adjust as needed.
Whisk the ingredients together until the dressing is smooth and well combined. Make sure there are no lumps, and the consistency is creamy.
Taste the dressing and adjust the sweetness or acidity by adding more honey or vinegar, if necessary. Customize it to suit your preferences.
Once you’re satisfied with the flavor, cover the bowl and refrigerate the dressing for at least 30 minutes before using. This allows the flavors to meld and the dressing to thicken slightly.
Before serving, give the dressing a final stir to ensure it’s well mixed. Pour it over shredded cabbage and carrots to make a classic creamy coleslaw or use it as a dressing for your favorite coleslaw recipe.
Enjoy your creamy coleslaw with this homemade dressing!
