A basic mayonnaise-based dressing that we make ahead and have on hand when crunchy coleslaw is on the menu for lunch or dinner. This dressing keeps well for several weeks refrigerated in a mason jar, a vintage bottle from the thrift store, or recycled dressing container (see photos). Yield is a little over 2 cups and will dress a lot of cabbage, so cut the recipe in half or less if you just want enough for immediate uses.
