Tangy Coleslaw (Cabbage Salad); Menu of the week — 13 Comments

  1. I love cole slaw and this sounds like a great recipe for it. I’m especially happy to see it’s not loaded with a cup of sugar like most of the recipes for it are. I will try this!

  2. My CSA gave me three heads of cabbage this week. You know what I’m making!

  3. And I thought my mom was the only one who did the celery seed thing!

  4. Pam, I was never particularly successful with coleslaw before this…
    Thanks, Kiki!
    Pam, 3 heads!!!! Yikes!
    Shayne, and it keeps well ;-))
    Tana, well, this is an old recipe…..(I like celery seeds)

  5. What a find for you and for all of us as well. I also want to thank you for your suggestions regarding the asparagus. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  6. I also am crazy about cabbage salad, but tend to reserve it as a USA pleasure. My mom makes great cole slaw from her grandmother’s recipe…

  7. I was kind of worried that the cole slaw dressing was going to be full of mayo and that I was going to have to bite my tongue and say WOW that looks great, even though I hate mayo. But this really does look amazing.

  8. Cole slaw is such a perfect summer salad. Did miss this the first time, so thanks for posting again. Never tried my slaw with red peppers, so this will be a fun one to make. Love that it has no mayo. I do a hot potato salad with similar dressing…but not a secret dressing like this one 🙂

  9. I love cider vinegar in my cole slaw dressing. I might have to substitute something for the 8 Tbsp of sugar, though, as our family has to watch the sugar consumption. I, too, love that it has no mayo.

  10. Mary, you are so welcome!
    Helen, this is a good keeper – except we eat it fast!
    Betty, I just got hungry for it – then found this recipe… it was a treat for me!
    Joanne, no mayo…. Great for picnics! One of the reasons I like it – not the standard.
    Eli, the original didn’t have red peppers in it, either. But I like the added bit of zing!
    Lydia, yeah, it’s a bit of sugar, but it makes quite a bit. With V I have to be careful, too, but we eat so little otherwise…
