How to Make Joe McCully's Famous New York Style Coleslaw


  1. Mix cabbage with scant amount of cole slaw dressing. Mix will look dry but will moisten overnight. Add a sprinkle of celery salt, tarragon to taste. You do not need to much. Taste the slaw.
  2. Refrigerate overnight. This is the key to the best slaw. If it is not moist enough, add a bit more dressing. Do not drown the slaw. Taste it again for seasoning.
  3. Note: Dad's slaw recipe was much more complex but this recipe is as close as it gets. Dad never gave me the recipe...I watched him make it and copied his style.
