Dilly Coleslaw Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 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. Yield: 8 servings.

"This recipe is easy to make and as the other reviewer stated you probably have everything in your kitchen. I did like the flavour of the salad even though it is different from most coleslaws, but my mom who also tried it, liked it, but prefers a coleslaw without pickles."

"Since I love dill pickles and always have them at hand, I made this recipe for a family bbq. Everyone loved the coleslaw, even my 8 year old niece. The only suggestion I could possibly have is to add more pickles, since I love them!!!"
