Ron’s World Famous Coleslaw and Raisin Salad


Ron’s World Famous Coleslaw and Raisin Salad

This is, as far as I know, my original recipe although I found another Cole slaw recipe with raisins, it wasn’t the same as mine.

½ head of green cabbage chopped fine

2 small carrots chopped fine

½ mild or sweet onion chopped fine                                                                                                      DSC_0008

½ small green pepper chopped fine

I use the larger cut KitchenAid vegetable shredding attachment

½ cup regular raisins (pineapple, pear, apple may be substituted)


½ cup white vinegar (Add as Last Ingredient, add/taste, add/ taste etc., to adjust to your taste) I’ve also used apple cider for a little more punch.

½ cup white sugar

½ cup miracle whip

¼ cup salad oil

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. celery seed

I just whisk this together and mix into the salad ingredients.

This recipe is best if refrigerated at least 12 hours.

Serve over a good scoop of small curd cottage cheese. It makes a great lunch all by itself and continues to taste better every day for a couple of days because the vinegar works on the cabbage.
