Italian Coleslaw

Posted by: Gina  :  Category: Salad Recipes

Italians love their salads and it is not unusual to have more than 5 or 6 different salads at a family meal. Often the salads are simple to prepare and have some very basic ingredients — olive oil, vinegar, garlic cloves, salt to name a few of the regulars. Cucumber sometimes with white onion, tomato with hot peppers and a specialty when in season is dandelion salads.

Today we are going to share a North American version of an Italian Colesaw Recipe which we hope you enjoy.


1/2 cup Italian Salad Dressing
1 cup Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
4 cups Shredded Cabbage (if you have on hand use 2 c purple and 2 c regular)
Sea Salt
Carrots (optional)


Slowly stir the 1/2 cup of Italian salad dressing into the mayonnaise. Once the dressing is blended or mixed well, you can add enough of the dressing mixture over the shredded cabbage to moisten; toss lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste and Mangiare!
