0 Recipe | "Make-ahead Sweet and Tangy Carrot Slaw" by Alicia

This is a super simple recipe, that gets better the longer it sits, making it the perfect "make-ahead" side dish for any meal!

(Recipe makes enough for 2 adults)  Ingredients: 
  • 2 Cups Shredded Carrots
  • 3/4 Cup Regular or Light Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Minced Jalapeno (Seeded)
  • 1 tsp. Minced Shallot (or White Onion)
  • 1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar (You may want to add a little more depending on how sweet your carrots are.)
  • 1/4 tsp. Celery Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. Mustard Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Dill Weed (Optional)
  • Small Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes (Optional)


Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, sugar and spices in a small bowl with a whisk. Combine in the jalapeno. Pour the mayonnaise mixture over the shredded carrots in a larger bowl and mix with a spoon. Let the mixture sit for a minimum of 2 hours. The longer the slaw sits the better it gets, as the natural sugars are released from the carrots.

Be sure to taste the mixture, and be sure it's sweet enough for your taste. Add in a bit more white sugar if necessary. Enjoy!
