This dressing is so fast and easy to make. It comes together in under 5 minutes and is a staple for anyone doing Paleo or Whole 30. This recipe has just 4 ingredients, no sugars or sweeteners of any kind, and is made with real food. It’s my go-to recipe for a fast, easy, healthy side.
The recipe is 4 parts mayonnaise, 1 part vinegar, salt, pepper. It’s very versatile- you can use apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar, red wine vinegar. For a sweeter dish, try using half apple cider vinegar and half pineapple juice.
Your dressing will be thick at first, but the tangy vinegar will wilt down the cabbage releasing natural juices and flavors. For best results, make your cabbage ahead and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to blend the flavors.
You don’t need to premix the dressing- just plop the ingredients right on top of your coleslaw. I like colorful, pretty veggies, so I use red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrots for a classic coleslaw.
So pretty. Gorgeous, vibrant colors make a rainbow salad. It’s health food but also a feast for the eyes.
I love this nifty julienne peeler for my carrots. It works on any firm fruit or veggie – zucchini, cucumbers, jicama, apples, sweet potatoes, and more. Mine came from Amazon along with a couple of vegetable peelers, and the handles are magnetic so I can hang it right on my knife rack and keep it out of reach of little kids.
You can add anything you wish to your slaw, as long as it’s crunchy. Sliced apples and onions with a little caraway seed makes a European version, or try adding chopped peanuts, green onions, and a dry package of ramen noodles for an Asian side dish.
It’s a great party dish or potluck side dish. It comes together so fast and the ingredients are very affordable. A medium head of cabbage and 4 carrots will make enough slaw for a group.
