Farm Fresh Coleslaw from her granddaughter-in-law Melane’s sister Karen has been added to Mom’s Recipe Box







Karen’s Farm Fresh Coleslaw

My recipe for “Mom’s Recipe Box” is : Karen’s Farm Fresh Cole Slaw. This is my Grandmother, Mimi’s recipe. Since her passing, I have carried on her tradition of making it for all special occasions, holidays, and every day mealtime.

The magic in this recipe is using farm fresh vegetables and spices.

This recipe is easy to make and very tasty – your family will be pleasantly surprised! –

Karen Poirier














1 small head green cabbage thinly shredded; 2 carrots peeled and shredded; one half cup Hellmann’s mayo; 2 teaspoons dijon mustard; 1 tablespoon cider vinegar; 1 teaspoon celery seed; one half teaspoon dried basil; salt and pepper to taste.



Combine all ingredients and chill for 2 hours and enjoy!











Look for Mom’s Recipe Box weekly on Fridays as family members add to and celebrate my mother’s collection of recipes, the Cecelia G. Bennett Collection. – JB
