Coleslaw - Sweet, Creamy & Sugar-free

Recipe By : Keri Cathey
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Salads Slaw

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 lb shredded cabbage -- to 1 1/2 lb
--or 1 bag slaw mix
2 carrots -- shredded
1/4 small red onion -- shredded, optional
--Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise, light -- to 3/4 cup
11 packets Splenda sweetener
2 Tbs cider vinegar
1/2 tsp tabasco sauce -- Chipotle, optional
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp celery seeds -- optional

Blend dressing ingredients well, and mix with vegetables. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

This recipe originally used 1/2 cup sugar. I had heard many good things about the taste of Splenda sweetener, so I thought I'd give it a shot in this. Since each packet = 2 teaspoons sugar, I ciphered thusly:

1/2 cup sugar = 4/8 cup = 4 x 2 Tbs = 8 Tbs = 8 x 3 tsp = 24 tsp / 2 = 12 packets to equal 1/2 cup sugar. I miscounted and only used 11 packets, but that was PLENTY sweet. Bubba-tested and approved.

1LT...what brand light mayo are you using that is sugar free? I went back to full fat mayo years ago after discovering light options replaced fat with sugar. Also, I'm cautious about salt but 1/4 tsp. seems light to sweat the veggies.

my wife just uses w'ever mayo or even miracle whip(which has sugar) we have on hand. And sometimes she will use celery salt if she doesn't have celery seeds. But, she has always used the splenda so - kinda half-way on the sugar free lol!

we just like the end result, it's the only coleslaw I've ever seen her eat. But, there are so many types of coleslaw, not everyone will like a 'creamy' style.

Thanks for the response, 1_LTex! I was thinking folks who need to restrict or eliminate refined sugar should know slaw made with low fat mayo would probably have significantly more sugar than regular mayo and not be sugar free.
