Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Because I am utterly sick of carpet shampooing and want an excuse for a break while I drink my diet coke, I am going to post a second recipe today.  Why am I carpet shampooing, you ask?  Well, that would be because my daughter got her hands on some tempera paints and COVERED her bedroom carpet in it.  I have a home shampooer, but after about 1/2 hour of shampooing I ran and rented a more powerful one.  2 1/2 hours later, I can say that it looks much better, but I still have a long way to go on getting it out.  I am thinking I won't be totally getting it out, not with her white carpet:(  In the grand scheme of things, it IS just carpet.  I guess we will just live with our imperfect, spotted carpet (this isn't the first mishap) and replace it when the kids are a bit older and less...accident prone/destructive.

I love a good coleslaw, especially in the summer.  I haven't found one the rest of my family really enjoys.  That is until this one.  Everyone loved it and even wanted seconds.  I didn't even get any leftovers the next day!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

16 oz. bag coleslaw mix
1/4 thinly sliced red onion
2/3 c. Light Miracle Whip
3 Tbsp. Canola Oil
1/2 c. white sugar
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. poppy seeds

Combine the coleslaw mix and onion in a large bowl.

Whisk together the Miracle Whip, oil, sugar, vinegar, salt, and poppy seeds in a medium bowl; blend throughly.  

Pour dressing mixture over coleslaw and toss to coat.  Chill at least 2 hours before serving.


  1. My grndma taught my mom to make this and she taught me. It's the best cole slaw...EVER

  2. LOVED it!!!! I brought this over to my friends house and she promptly responded "I don't like coleslaw". I told her I made it and she should at least try it....she had THREE helpings!! It is delicious, thank you!
