Creamy Ranch Coleslaw Ingredients

  • Daisy Creamy Ranch Dip: The secret ingredient to this tasty side dish. It has a scratch-made ranch flavor straight from the tub. It creates the creamy element of this fresh and flavorful coleslaw.
  • Mayonnaise: Helps bind the other ingredients together and adds a creamy richness to the dressing with just a touch of tang to the salad.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice: Adds a burst of freshness and acidity, helping balance the creaminess of the dressing. Fresh squeezed lemon juice is best for this recipe. Fresh lemon juice is bright and lemony, whereas bottled lemon juice can taste stale and chemically.
  • Bagged Coleslaw Mix: Available in the produce section of the grocery store, these pre-shredded and premixed vegetables are ultimate in convenience. The vegetables in the coleslaw mix are full of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. ½ cup of classic cabbage coleslaw mix contains 35% of the daily dose of vitamin C and 75% of daily does of vitamin K.
  • Scallions or Green Onions: Milder in flavor than other onions, scallions and green onions are slightly sweet and add a bit of peppery zip to the coleslaw. Scallions and green onions may be used interchangeably.

Substitutions, Variations, and Tips

  • Daisy Sour Cream may be used in place of the mayonnaise for a tangy twist.
  • Bottled lemon juice can be used in place of fresh in a pinch.
  • Chives may be used in place of the scallions or green onions. They may be substituted 1:1 (3-4 tablespoons).
  • Broccoli slaw or Asian slaw may be used in place of coleslaw mix.
  • 2 Tablespoons of finely diced yellow onions may be used in place of scallions or green onions.
