coleslaw, hold the mayo!

no mayo coleslaw urbanpocketknife

Sometimes I just have a craving for coleslaw, even that awful creamy green super shredded goop satisfies!  I have no idea what makes that kind of coleslaw green but I opted out of finding out how and instead made my version instead.  Left over purple cabbage was sitting in the fridge and I just happen to have purchased a green one that day too…time for coleslaw!

This involves no mayo and is a light vinaigrette dressing instead.  Cabbage stays crunchy so this big salad last us for a few days and tasted great until the last day!

Here’s the recipe…

What you need!
1/2 head of purple cabbage
1/2 head of green cabbage
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp salt

What to do!

1.  Use whatever method you like to chop up your cabbage.  I just cut thin slices all the way through and discard anyno mayo coleslaw urbanpocketknife hard stumpy bits.

2.  In a separate bowl, add all the dressing ingredients and mix ’em together.  Toss the cabbage with a little dressing at a time and taste test to make sure it’s to your liking!  Feel free to shred in some carrot or radish too!

    It’s also good to add some walnuts.
