  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp grated onion (yellow or Vidalia)
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed

Instructions

  • Add the ingredients for the coleslaw dressing to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if necessary.
  • Add the shredded cabbage and carrots, and mix until everything is well coated in dressing.
