Junior’s, that historic eatery in Downtown Brooklyn, still makes their famous creamy coleslaw using this recipe. It is simply extraordinary and perfect with meats or sandwiches.

Junior's Creamy Coleslaw
Recipe type: Salads
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16
  • 2 Cups mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon freshly-ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large carrots; shredded
  • 1 head green cabbage (about 2 pounds); shredded
  1. Dressing: In small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, garlic, pepper and salt. Set aside.
  2. Slaw: In large bowl, toss carrots and cabbage. Immediately pour dressing over cabbage mix and toss until vegetables are well coated. Cover bowl and refrigerate until vegetables wilt just a little, about 15 minutes. (Flavors will blend even better if you let slaw marinate in refrigerator for about 1 hour.)
  3. Toss again before serving to redistribute any dressing that has settled in bottom of bowl.
