I had a sudden urge to make some quick and easy coleslaw (which I don't normally make) and remembered that my mother-in-law used to buy a bag of coleslaw veggies already chopped up and pour a bottle of coleslaw dressing over it and mix it up.

Found the bag of coleslaw easily enough, but no coleslaw dressing. I went to Sprouts first and then King Soopers (Kroger's). Nada. So many dressings to choose from but no humble coleslaw dressing. I guess things have changed in the 20 years since mother-in-law died. I bought poppyseed dressing instead and will see if family likes it tonight at dinner. So what happened to coleslaw dressing?

Interesting, because I see it (made by Hidden Valley and Kraft) everywhere.

You can also order it from Amazon,
but... what about making it yourself? It's really easy:

I just make my own. Mine is very similar to the one that Elnina posted except I don't use dry mustard and use red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar.

I used a store bought Raspberry vinaigrette but I also added chunks of green apples to my coleslaw to help complement the dressing. It was a tasty salad but needed some other umph.

It should have been at Kroger. Different shaped bottle than the regular dressings. Also in the fresh dressing aisle. But, OMG, look at the fat and calorie content. :eek

I agree! Many dressings just sabotage your salad and most people tend to ignore their salad dressing's reported serving size, which is usually only two (2!) tablespoons.
And the low-calorie or low-fat dressings may not always be a healthier option either. (most taste like a crap, anyway). Not to forget that low-fat salad dressings prevent the body's ability to absorb the carotenoid antioxidants in salad greens and tomatoes, thus greatly diminishing a major health benefit of eating salad

You must have overlooked it--it's usually right by the salad dressings, & some refrigerated versions are often by the salads. Some packaged coleslaw "mixes" have it in the bag. I just make my own--a little mayo, rice wine vinegar, sugar, salt, garlic/onion powder, & celery seed.

I use Marzetti's coleslaw dressing. It's in the condiments aisle, and in the stores around me, it's sort of above the mayo near the edge of where the bottled salad dressings start.

From a chef site:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
up to 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon cumin

It's pretty simple and easy to make yourself. If you want it sweet, which is common, add a little sugar--but I prefer it without sugar.

Geez, no wonder I rarely use salad dressing! Anyway, thanks all for your remarks and recipes. It sounds like it is indeed still available. I either missed it (though I did look through all the dressings) or it was just an off day for those two particular store locations.

At any rate, my five grandchildren told me politely that they "don't really care for coleslaw" so it was a moot point, but I thought it was good...ought to be with all the calories and fat!
