Tired of all the super sweet coleslaw dressings out there? Look no further! Caution - must LOVE garlic! This is a copycat recipe for the famous garlic coleslaw served at Vincent's seafood restaurant, a Dallas legend since 1968. Growing up, we had an Easter tradition of dinner at Vincent's every year. The coleslaw was my dad's favorite and became mine too! We still go there for Easter but I love being able to recreate this unique recipe at home anytime. Goes great with barbecue ribs, burgers, seafood steam pot, or just as a cool crisp snack. The longer it cures, the better it gets!

Instructions Checklist

  • Gather chopped garlic into a mound on a cutting board and pour salt over top. Using the flat side of a chef's knife, smash the garlic and salt together and transfer to a bowl. Whisk grapeseed oil, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, ground paprika, ground white pepper, sugar, and celery seed together with garlic mixture until dressing reaches a uniform consistency.

  • Pour dressing over shredded cabbage and toss to evenly coat. Press coleslaw down into the bowl using the back of a spoon or place another bowl on top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Stir before serving.

Cook's Note:

Canola oil or peanut oil can be substituted for grapeseed oil. A sugar substitute like stevia works great.

Who knew garlic could taste soooo good in coleslaw? The recipe author is correct you really do need to love garlic to enjoy this recipe. Well we do and we LOVED this coleslaw dressing. Never been to Vincent's Seafood Restaurant but we go to Dallas every Christmas so we just may have to check it out. crancherry thanks for sharing your copycat recipe. Read More

this was very good. I did change it a bit by adding instead of pepper &celery seed, a seasoning mix that contained dried lemon, pepper and celery seed. I think the lemon gave a bit of a zing. very good Read More

Ok I made it again and kept closer to the recipe except I used hemp oil instead of grapeseed and a bag of colored coleslaw and just slightly less spice and vinegar and it is loved! It really blends beautifully over night so do make enough for a couple of meals! Read More
