When I took this coleslaw to a church function, I came home with an empty bowl! You can easily double the recipe for a larger group. It’s not your typical slaw—with chopped dill pickles and a sweet-tart dressing featuring pickle juice.


  • 8 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, pickles and onion. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve with a slotted spoon.
