Not Your Mother's Coleslaw

My dear friend Jessica posted a request for coleslaw last night, so I thought I would oblige her!  This is not your typical coleslaw because I personally don't care for mayonnaise (you can blame my youngest child - couldn't handle the smell while I was pregnant with him and that didn't change after he was born!).  I personally add more olive oil and red vinegar but you can flavor to your taste.


  • 6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup red wine (or cider) vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  1. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, celery, green pepper and onion. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid (a large mason jar works very well!), combine the vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, pepper and paprika; shake well. Pour over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
