Captain Ds Cole Slaw is a favorite of mine. Whenever people talk about their guilty pleasures, this would be one of mine. Their creamy sweet and savory cole slaw is simple to make, and it tastes wonderful.
The summer begs for picnics and cool and refreshing salads. Are you looking for an easy cole slaw recipe? This may be the one you like to dry. This recipe is made simply, chopped cabbage, chopped carrots, and a tangy slightly sweet sauce that is drizzled over these freshly chopped vegetables is hard to resist.
I personally am a huge fan of Captain Ds. This is one of the few chain fish and chip places around. I personally love fish when done in this style, while you shouldn't enjoy it too often it can be a big treat. Whenever I go here, the cole slaw is what I go for first. This is a creamy cole slaw, and I personally love the note of celery seed in this recipe. It adds something that most cole slaw does not have.
I love this side dish, it is an inexpensive recipe to make. So this recipe is perfect for when you have a large crowd to serve. Homemade cole slaw tastes so much than any store bought version. Yes, you can buy a large tub of cole slaw in the store, but I often find the crunch of the cabbage gone, since this isn't difficult to make, you should give this cabbage salad a try in your own home.
Captain D's Cole Slaw
You can prepare this restaurant favorite made at home with this copycat recipe.
- 1 medium sized head cabbage chopped fine
- 2 large carrots chopped
- 2 tablespoons white onion chopped fine
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt or 1 1/2 teaspoons celery salt and omit celery seed
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Chop cabbage, celery, and onions and place into a large bowl. In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, and celery seed. Whisk dressing together and drizzle over the chopped vegetables. Stir to combine dressing and vegetables until the cabbage is well coated. This recipe is best when allowed to rest in a covered dish in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
You can use either celery salt, or salt and celery seed. I personally like the flavor of the salt and celery seed, because the flavor is slightly more rich this way.Print Recipe
