KitchenAid KFP0922CU 9-Cup Food Processor with Exact Slice System – Contour SilverYes, I said it. You can make this even easier by using 2 bags of store-bought coleslaw mix.
I don’t mind shredded up some cabbage and carrots thanks to my food processor doing most of the work, but if you’re making coleslaw for a large crowd the store-bought is just as good and a huge time saver!
I opt for making it myself most of the time as we can’t find an organic coleslaw mix.
The food processor we use makes it even easier with the exact slice system. It makes even slices every time and I love it for making slices for salads as well. 🙂
After cutting my finger tip off with a mandoline (didn’t use a guard, thankfully learned my lesson!) I can never be without my food processor.

You really only need a few simple ingredients and how you prepare it depends on your preference and the time you want to take to make it. You could simply pick up a bag of coleslaw mix and coleslaw dressing from the store and mix the two together. Another option is shredding everything on your own and making homemade coleslaw dressing.
Sometimes we like to go with a mix of the two and make a homemade coleslaw dressing and dump over the coleslaw mix. This results in a simple coleslaw recipe, but we’re still making the dressing to our liking, we just don’t have to shred all the veggies and wash more than one dish in the process.

It’s seriously so simple and you’ll be so glad you started making it from home! There’s no need to buy the jars in the store, especially if you already have all the ingredients at home. You could easily just use our recipe with the store bought bag mix of coleslaw too.
All you need is:
- White Vinegar (I prefer apple cider vinegar, but my husband won’t touch anything with it)
It’s that simple! You have to have those ingredients, right? 🙂 If you want to thin it out and use less mayo you can also use sour cream, yogurt, or even buttermilk.
