I think I love just about any kind of coleslaw recipe - creamy, vinaigrette, sweet, not sweet, spicy or not spicy.  And this recipe does not get any easier!   A simple everyday coleslaw recipe.  There are so many options you could use for the dressing.  This dressing was on the tart side, which we loved.  If you wanted it sweet, just add some honey to the dressing.  What about diced sweet gherkins?  For a spicy kick, add in some horseradish, or Dijon Mustard - all of these options would work nicely.
3 cups finely shredded green cabbage
1 large grated carrot
2 finely minced green onions
1 finely sliced celery stalk
a big 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon
1 Tblsp. Rice Vinegar
fresh cracked pepper, and a pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. Celery Seed
Place all of the vegetables into a bowl, tossing lightly with a fork.  In another bowl, mix up the dressing ingredients, whisking well to incorporate.  Pour over the coleslaw, and mix well.  Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
