However you choose to serve this Vinegar Slaw, everyone will love the unique taste!

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) package shredded green cabbage

I don't like traditional creamy slaw, but I think I could really like this recipe!

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
