Coleslaw Recipe

With the warmer months approaching, coleslaw is going to be a staple for many picnics and parties. We are going to have a barbeque for Easter and also celebrate out grandson's birthday. We were at the grocery store looking pre-made coleslaw dressing to go with bag of coleslaw mix and did not find anything we wanted. So we decided to make our own dressing. We pulled out of smartphones and looked up a recipe and came up with this recipe. Leave it to my husband to put his own spin on a recipe, so here is the recipe for coleslaw:
16 oz bag of coleslaw mix
2 T diced onion
1/2 cup creamy salad dressing (like Miracle Whip)
1/3 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup white sugar
1 T white vinegar
1/4 t salt
1 T celery salt
1/2 t poppy seeds

Combine the slaw mix and onion. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over slaw mix. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
