Mr. Food was lucky to get this recipe from an aunt of one of his Southern friends. Vinegar Slaw is a nice change from the usual mayonnaise type of coleslaw.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) package shredded green cabbage
What To Do:
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
     
  2. Place cabbage in a large bowl and add vinegar mixture, tossing until well mixed. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Very nice change to traditional slaw. Very good!!

Made this last week and cut the sugar and oil in half. Everyone loved it!

I found that the oil is not needed. I use apple cider vinager. It is wonderful!

I cut it to /2 cup of SPLENDA and used toasted sesame Iand celery seeds. rIand celery seeds. I think a 1/4 cup of SPLENDA would work just fine . you need to try it to suit your taste. It really is good!!!

too much and too oil

too much sugar for me, i'm diabetic!

This is the only type of coleslaw I like. It is a lot of sugar, I think that could be cut in half, and be sure to add celery seed. Also I wouldn't use nearly that much oil, just a couple of tablespoons. Since I hate coleslaw made with mayonnaise, I've been faking this type of coleslaw for years. :)

I suppose you could use a sweetener like Splenda

Why ruin a tasty and healthy coleslaw with all that sugar?

That seems like a lot of sugar??

We used such a recipe for coleslaw, but without the sugar! We adjusted the oil-to-vinegar ratio to taste. We never had a mayonnaise-based coleslaw growing up.

My mother use to make it but whit out the oil
