  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1-1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp raw liquid honey
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp celery seed (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt (or salt to taste)
  • 1 (16-ounce) bag of coleslaw mix


  • In the bottom of a large bowl, add the first 6 ingredients and whisk until combined. Add the coleslaw mix to the bowl and toss until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. 


Coleslaw can be made and refrigerated for up to 8 hours ahead of serving.
 For the best flavor and texture, serve it the day it's made, but it will keep for a few days in the fridge. However, there will be more liquid that may need to be drained off before serving.
