Everytime my husband would bring me home a hot dog I'd request the deli's coleslaw to go with it. My coleslaw never turned out quite as good. One day - with my husbands helped I finally tweaked my recipe and I finally had my deli coleslaw how I liked it!
Just a note: this recipe tastes even better when you use fresh cabbage. It's easy to check with a lightbox, much cheaper, and the taste of the bagged cabbage just can't compare.
1 coleslaw mix OR ½ head cabbage shredded
6 Tbsp mayonnaise
½ cup sugar
⅛ cup vinegar
⅛ cup lemon juice
¾ cup water
1 pinch black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients and let it sit for at least an hour before serving.
