How to make coleslaw with homemade mayonnaise video

I love coleslaw. It’s one of my favorite summer salads. I prefer to make my own mayonnaise to go along with it. It adds so much flavor to the coleslaw and has a unique taste that is different than store bought mayonnaise.  I learned how to make coleslaw using my homemade mayonnaise a while ago & I really prefer it over store bought.

How to make coleslaw

How to make coleslaw1 bag of shredded coleslaw veggies
1 cup homemade mayonnaise (see below)
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoons celery seed
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoons garlic powder

Mix all the ingredients well with a whisk. Pour over shredded veggies and mix well. Refrigerate to let the flavors blend. Enjoy cold and use within 48 hours.



How to make Homemade Mayonnaise

1 egg yolk
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice or white vinegar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil

Put egg yolk and lemon juice in large bowl.  Slowly drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the mixture while blending with an immersion blender. Do NOT add it too fast or it will not work.  Refrigerate and use within 48 hours.

Check out my how to make your own mayonnaise video for step by step instructions. It’s quite simple to make and the taste of homemade mayonnaise is far better than the kind you purchase in the grocery store.  Grocery store mayonnaise generally contains way more than the three ingredients that need to be there so it can sit on the shelf in the store. You can make it homemade very easily and it’s all natural.
