I have been trying to find a good coleslaw recipe forever. There was a favorite restaurant of Mama and Pop's that served a wonderful coleslaw that they both loved. The restaurant gave me the ingredients but could not give me measurements as they said they just mixed everything together in a big tub. I gave this recipe a try and it is sooo very close. The first time I made it for them they both said it was a keeper, we all had seconds and/or thirds.
I like to add the slaw mix into the food processor and pulse a few times, this is not necessary but this is what we like. Remove slaw to mixing bowl. If adding onion and/or celery put them in food processor and pulse a few times until diced fine. Add to the slaw mix.
In separate bowl mix dressing ingredients - Miracle Whip, sugar and vinegar. Can add any additional seasonings such as onion powder, celery salt, celery seed.
Add dressing to slaw and mix well. Mixture will seem somewhat on the dry side but after it sits in the refrigerator for a couple hours it will be perfect, not soupy.
