Ready in 5 minutes, this Easy Classic Coleslaw is the ideal potluck side dish. With a handful of ingredients, it’s perfectly creamy with just enough tang, and sure to be a picnic hit.


  • 5 tbsp sour cream
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 16 oz package coleslaw mix


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the coleslaw mix and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. You could even make it ahead and refrigerate it overnight. I prefer letting it sit for a bit for the flavors to some together a bit.
