My family on the East Coast of Canada get takeout from St-Hubert a couple of times a month. Either Chicken or Ribs but always with a side of their Traditional Coleslaw.
For us Americans, St-Hubert is one of the largest Canadian owned restaurant chains with over 126 locations, mostly on the East Coast. They are best known for their Rotisserie Chicken.
I find it fascinating how divided people are when it comes to coleslaw. Some only like vinegar-based coleslaw like this recipe while others will only eat mayonnaise-based coleslaw. If you prefer the latter, check out my Creamy St-Hubert Coleslaw recipe.
Just like most coleslaw recipes, this one is super easy to make. Especially if you use pre-packaged coleslaw mix. I am always on the run so I "cheat" by buying it pre-shredded. If you have time on your side, you can shred your own cabbage and carrots for this recipe.
If you do use the pre-packaged mix make sure it's the green cabbage and carrots variety. There are several different mixes out there so if you want to try to be as authentic as possible make sure you get the right one.

I am a lover of cabbage so I decided to try this recipe. It was just like the real recipe. Very tasty. I have made it a few times and have always had great reviews.
I'm a big fan of St Hubert's cole slaw and look forward to trying this reecipe. However, can you clarify . The instructions say, "In a saucepan, combine vinegar, oil, dried mustard, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a boil." But there is no "dried mustard" on the ingredients list. Similarly, the ingredients list "garlic and onion powder".
Thanks for pointing that out. The recipe card is correct. I updated the incorrect text.
