Coleslaw without mayonnaise dressing.
This is a great recipe. I bought packaged coleslaw from the supermarket and then added the onion and dressing. It is the best tasting coleslaw I've ever had and I'll be throwing away my other recipes for coleslaw and only using this one!Read More

This is a great recipe. I bought packaged coleslaw from the supermarket and then added the onion and dressing. It is the best tasting coleslaw I've ever had and I'll be throwing away my other recipes for coleslaw and only using this one!
I use this recipe (with less sugar when I'm eating it) for nearly all of my raw vegetable salad dishes. Sometimes I chop cucumber, carrot, crushed garlic and tomato and add the oil, vinegar and sugar. For spice, I might add one or more of the following: chili pepper, herbs de provance, oregano, celery seed, pepper flakes, ancho chili powder. When making the slaw with cabbage I use the red kind because it's so beautiful but it does need to to sit for a day as the cabbage needs time to absorb the acid of the vinegar and breakdown some of the "rubbery squeakiness" on the teeth. I also add about a teaspoon of some fresh herb (yesterday it was parsley). I think it needs some green herb.
Quick and easy, and mmmmm so good! I eat it as soon as I'm done making it :) ps. for those of you who don't like to use a lot of oil, it tastes just as good with less oil (approximately half).
A good and easy alternate to regular creamy coleslaw, for variety, I added about 1/2 tsp. of ground mustard, a little less sugar than what the recipe calls for, and some honey. MMMMMM.
Right now, I'm giving this recipe 4 stars but I think it will become 5 stars. I took the suggestions of other reviewers and reduced the oil and sugar by 1/2 and used taragon vinegar (3/8 c. rather than 1/4 c.). I also added salt and pepper. It was very, very good but I think I would prefer it with regular cider vinegar. Next time I will try that and post the comparison.
I was looking for a good alternative to my creamy slaw that I usually make when I came across this recipe. I used a 16oz package of slaw mix, cut the sugar down to 2 tbls, and used just shy of 1/4 C olive oil. I also added some sea salt and cracked pepper to my taste, 1Tbls honey, and 1 tsp celery seed. This is a great base to "play with" The first taste was so good, I can't wait to taste it after it's been sitting overnight!
Very good and Very easy. I used packaged coleslaw, added red onion. Also good with seasoned rice vinegar. Will definately make it again!
This is a really easy and tasty coleslaw recipe! I prefer to let it marinade - and eat it the next day.
A little too sweet for my liking... I would reduce the amount of sugar by at least half.
Everyone loved this coleslaw. Next time I'm doubling the recipe. mmm...
I will never make traditional mayo based coleslaw again after making this. I followed the recipe to the letter so I can fairly rate the recipe, ok, not true, I added salt and pepper to taste. This recipe is wonderful, a keeper, so thank you for posting it.
Add some kernel corn, black beans and some cajun seasoning to taste and YUM!!
Doesn't taste as well with olive oil.
Excellent slaw. I used Tarragon vinegar for a little extra bite!
Substitue 4 tablespoons Splenda in place of sugar. Good classic recipe, easy, easy, easy.
Really enjoyed this as it is not mayonaised based. Used red onion since that is what I had. Put it on kalua pork sandwiches. Very good by itself too.
this was an amazingly good and amazingly easy recipe. I'm not a big coleslaw fan because I don't like mayonnaise. My husband was making dinner and had already shredded the cabbage and carrots (he used Napa cabbage). He asked me to look for a dressing for it and this was the first I found. I didn't add the onion, but I bet it would be good, and made the dressing just as written. I used apple cider vinegar, since they didn't specify. Some reviewers have found it too sweet, but I thought it was perfect! I was so happy to have a non-mayonnaise dressing that was so good! I will definitely make it again. It's much healthier than the usual and so good. The only reason it's not 5 stars is that I just don't like cabbage that much.
Very nice and simple recipe. I have also tried it with apple cider vinegar and enjoyed that as well.
After 35 years, my husband told me he didn't like my mayonnaise based coleslaw and wished I would make it vinegar based. So this is the first one I tried. He liked it much much better.
Yum! I was looking forward to having more the next day but my boyfriend had eaten the rest while I was at work! It was great and I've been looking for a recipe without the mayonnaise!
This is a great recipe as is! For fun I added some celery seed and a teaspoon of hot curry powder. As another reviewer said - this is a great base recipe as is - but the possibilities of having fun with it are endless. Thanks for the recipe!!
This wasn't like normal coleslaw, so don't go into it thinking it will taste the same! But it had an interesting flavor and went well with ribs and baked beans. I used apple cider vinegar and about half the amount of oil (I used sunflower oil) and half the amount of sugar. I wish I could have left out the sugar altogether, but it was necessary to counter the tartness of the vinegar. Altogether a good recipe for non-mayo-eating people who like BBQ :)
This is delicious!! I like to use purple and green cabbage because it looks nice. Only have the sugar and oil, and this was a hit. Yum!!
I’ve been looking for a coleslaw recipe that didn’t use mayo and this one fit the bill perfectly. It is quick and easy to make and has a light refreshing taste. I like a dressing with a little bite so I only used 1/2 the sugar. Next time I will use even less as it was still a little too sweet for my taste. I also pre-mixed all the dressing ingredients and then poured it over the salad.
I'm sorry, but this really was not good. I made it in hopes of duplicating a local restaurant's recipe which I know contains the same ingredients.
Great! The hubs doesn't like mayo or mustard, so cole slaw was never an option. But I thought this recipe sounded yummy, subbed in rice vinegar, cut down the sugar as suggested, and thought it was a great light + easy side for our grilled chicken dinner! To be perfectly honest, the hubs wasn't a huge fan, but he's not generally a fan of any veggies except raw carrots -- but he added Italian dressing and was good to go :D
This recipe needs a little something else. Not as sweet as some and not as tangy as the southern kind that goes with BBQ. I'd have to side with those that said it is nothing special. Maybe I will try again with rice vinegar as some suggest. Thanks for contributing the recipe though!
I had to add a little extra vinegar and celery salt to get the flavor right for my husband and I. Very good!
I used the ready mixed broccoli slaw so I didn't need a carrot. I did use 1/8 cup sugar as some of the others have suggested. This was the perfect blend of sweet and tart. Very good recipe that we will make again and again.
Perfect and easy - I try to avoid demon refined sugar so I'll skip the sugar, use half the oil and use sweet red onions to give a bit of sweetness back. If Balsamic didn't ruin the aestehtic I'd use that instead of regular vinegar...the tarragon idea was great!
This was a great tasting recipe. I added an extra carrot and substituted Splenda for the sugar. My husband and son loved it. I will be making this again.
I hate cabbage but I thought this was pretty good. I gave some to a friend and she said it was ok but preferred the mayo kind.... If I get more cabbage I'll probably try this again...
This is what I was looking for.Easy and Yummy.One tip take the oil, vinegar and sugar heat in the microwave then refrigerate......
I am dieting so I substituted a little less Splenda for sugar and added caraway seed plus salt & pepper. My family thought it was great and they are not on a diet.
This is great and healthy! For a twist I used Balsalmic Vinegar and olive oil! :)
This is a very good basic recipe, but a bit too sweet for me, so start with less sugar and add to taste. I happened to be out of veg oil, so I used 1/8 C olive oil and 1/8 C almond oil, which gave it a wonderful nutty taste. I also added 1/4 tsp Coleman's mustard and some ground celery seed. Yum!
I mixed Splenda and sugar half and half and just poured the oil (less than called for) and vinegar over the packaged cabbage mix with the sugar mix on top. Had to go out the next day and buy twice the amount because everyone complained they wanted more. This is so easy and delicious.
This salad is very refreshing.
My husband labeled this "a keeper." I used seasoned rice wine vinegar as one of the reviewers suggested. I'll definitelly make this again.
Loved the vinegar flavor to this! I served it on pulled pork sandwich. I used a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw from the store. I think it was equivalent to more than a head of cabbage, but still used the same proportions for everything else. Very good!
I subbed red cabbage, which was delicious! I cut the sugar in half, and it was still sweet to my taste. Added 1/4 cup more vinegar and fabulous- thanks!!!
good job but i have seen better
i used olive oil,1/3 cup of sugar and premade coleslaw.good recipe with seafood.
This is a great slaw. Used 1/8 cup lightly flavored olive oil, subbed 1/8 cup Agave for sugar and used half green and half red cabbage. Very good!
I didn't like this at all! It wasn't tangy or tasty enough at all! I buy a vinegar & oil coleslaw at the grocery store and it is delicious, but this one just didn't cut the cake for me, sorry.
Very weird tasting on its own. Add 1/2 tsp salt and it's perfect. Otherwise just tastes like marinated veggies, not slaw.
Pretty good. Thanks.
This recipe is acceptable but unremarkable. Its a bit bland. I made it because I wanted something healthy and low fat. I used less dressing than suggested and like others I cut back on the sugar. I used more veggies also. I used a red cabbage, more carrots, red pepper, cucumber and this made it look better and its healthier. I am going to look for a dressing which is also low fat and calorie but a little tastier.
Yumzers! Finally found the perfect slaw!! Cut the sugar by half.
This will now be my go to for coleslaw dressing. No more high calorie mayo!
I used half a head of savoy cabbage and slightly less than 1/4 cup of sugar and it was great. I'll make this again.
I prefer a more savory coleslaw and less sweet, so I omitted the onion and sugar, then added about 1/2 tsp. of pepper, and about 1/2 tsp. of salt. It was great!
interesting option to omit mayo...I added ground smoked paprika and black pepper, subbed in macadamia oil, and reduced the sugar - dece result, thanks for the concept!
I don't like cabbage so I used lettuce and I didn't like this.
I use a couple of chopped up green onions instead of generic onion, also 1 chopped apple (skin on), substitute apple cider vinegar for generic vinegar, cut back a tad on the sugar and add a touch of honey. Nice fresh flavor.
Easy to make and tasty. Will make again.
This came out really good but I did add in a little bit of chopped apples n raisins. So simple n quick to make.
Simple and Delicious
I will never buy a bag of coleslaw again! I chopped the cabbage, shredded the carrot and greatly reduced the sugar. Day 1, I had it after sitting hour and it was a bit too crunchy and a little bitter but still very good. Day 2 I added a tbsp mayonnaise and it was wonderful.
This, surprisingly, was very good. I liked the fact that it had no mayonnaise. Less calories and fat, but I did not put in as much sugar. One quarter cup isn't a lot, but I still thought it would make it too sweet, which it needed to cut down on the acidic vinegar taste. I used about an 1/8 of a cup and also since I did not have cabbage, I did substitute a pre-shredded bag of coleslaw which also had carrots in it. I would make this again.
Very good with pulled pork
As advised by other reviewers, I halved the sugar and oil. I added half a teaspoon of black pepper and used half an onion...the black pepper might not have made a difference (I couldn't taste it) but otherwise the recipe was great! Will make again.
I had half a large head of green cabbage and packaged carrot shreds. I needed to use up a few sweet peppers I had on hand and red onion. I took everyones advice and cut the sugar in half, used white balsamic vinegar, light olive oil and I added caraway seeds and Mrs Dash seasonings. First taste was great, tomorrow should be even better!
Excellent if you cut the amount of sugar by half.
Made this tonight to go with pulled pork I had smoked. Everyone loved it, seriously, even the people who did they didn't like coleslaw. I used a rice vinegar flavored with roasted garlic, and only half the sugar. And more carrot and red cabbage. It was bomb. Never going to make creamy again.
I tried it for first time and normally I do not eat coleslaw but thought I would try. Wow I will now eat it with this dressing. Also so good I'm making it again to go with tomorrow's dinner. I also bought packaged coleslaw added a little grated onion and then the dressing. So awesome.
This is perfect for picnics because it has no mayonnaise
A great basic coleslaw recipe that you can customize however you wish, although my husband and I loved it as is. And for whatever it’s worth, we consider ourselves coleslaw snobs. Thank you!
I had a bag of packaged Coleslaw and I added sweet onion, sesame oil and apple cider vinegar... My husband was shocked how crisp and delicious it was.. we will not be making Coleslaw with Mayo anymore! It's perfect for this hot summer days!! Thanks!
Delicious! It's nice and simple! I used olive oil for vegetable oil and used some honey in exchange for sugar. Refrigerated overnight and turned out great!
I love the simplicity of this recipe. And the fact that it is vegan friendly is a plus. I did substitute 1/2 tsp. onion powder in place of the onion itself. And I sprinkled some salt to enhance the flavors.
Perfect as written!
Wonderful though we added a teaspoon of salt and pepper. We would add more vinegar and less sugar. We also added chopped bell pepper and green onion.
I like coleslaw with a little zip and less creamy… This was great and a healthy way to get my vegetables I know I'll eat this LOL
Added jalapeño. Yeah I did!
Yum! I was looking for a no mayo recipe and found it! I halved the sugar and oil. I also added a 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and added a little salt.
This was way better than any store-bought I’ve ever had. I will never buy ready-made coleslaw dressing again!
I didn't change a thing and I wouldn't change a thing. It wasn't overly "vinegary" or "mayonnaisey" as my husband said. He is extremely adept at noticing, and letting me know, if I used too much of either of those two flavors! I will not even search for another coleslaw recipe in the future. This will be my go to.
I substituted one shredded head of kohlrabi for the cabbage and halved the sugar and it was delicious. I will probably use less oil next time since the kohlrabi created less of a slaw mixture than one head of cabbage would.
I don't know why anybody has to add sugar especially that much to coleslaw try it without sugar it's a whole lot better for you and it even tastes better
Great slaw! I made this to top black bean burgers. I did follow reviewers' advice and cut the sugar and oil by half. I opted for apple cider vinegar using enough to equal the missing oil/sugar. I also made it a few hours ahead so it could marinate before dinner. It was perfect on the burgers and my teenaged boys finished off the leftovers.
This was surprisingly good given how simple the recipe is. I used half the sugar (2 Tbsp) and that seemed like a good balance. I would definitely make it again.
Recipe is pretty delicious as written but I did add paprika and some black pepper
I actually used olive oil and cider vinegar with sugar and it gave the coleslaw and apple taste that was very good. It goes well with our southern bbq. wonderful..
Great recipe. Definitely make this the night before and refrigerate to allow the vinegar to work into the cabbage. Goes great with pulled pork.
Easy to put together and very good! After reading the reviews, I reduced the sugar by almost half (and it still had sweetness to it). I used apple cider vinegar instead of the regular type. For more flavor, I added a little celery seed, garlic powder, salt, pepper and dried parsley. Nice change from mayo-based coleslaws. I'd make this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Good coleslaw recipe. My guests loved it. I added cucumber to add extra crunch. I also added 1/4 cup of mayo to add a little but of a creamy texture. I recommend chilling the prepared coleslaw before serving to allow the ingredients to come together. I also used two pre-made bags of coleslaw mix versus using cabbage & carrots like the recipe calls for.
I love this recipe for summer BBQs, we are sponsoring a big BBQ for our SPCA next week and this will be the hit of the day!! Everyone that has already had it loves it. Thank you
Loved this easy recipe! I added raisins and diced Apple to it and it was delicious!
Thought it was a little too sweet so will cut down on sugar the next time I make it. I also added some mayonnaise at the end. This gave it a better flavor. Will use this recipe again. It was simple to make and my husband loved it.
Great recipe, so easy and fast to make! Just like other reviews, I also used packaged slaw mix! This is a keeper of a recipe!!!!
We made this tonight, after searching for more of a vinegar based slaw, different than our usual go to. This was a great base, but I only gave it 4 stars because we did need to change it a bit. Regardless, I’ll definitely use this as a base again. We started with a bag of slaw mix (mixed cabbage & carrots). We added a bit of cayenne pepper, quite a bit of cracked black pepper and some fresh ground salt. We also added a good bit of celery seed and celery salt. Enjoy!
Recipe was a basic cole slaw recipe. Simple and easy and quick. Loved the results!!!!!
Very simple and tasty. I adjust to match my family's preferences.
I grabbed this recipe to make coleslaw for my husband never giving a thought to not having mayonnaise in it. When I put it on the table I thought he won't eat it. Well he did and enjoyed it. I will make it again.
I just finished making this a few minutes ago and I'm having trouble leaving it alone long enough for it to properly marinate (that's with a "T", not a "D") and 'wilt'. I was looking for a recipe that wouldn't be too heavy and a bit different from my mayo recipe. This stuff is great! Okay, I did adjust a bit, but not so much as to completely morph it into a different recipe. I used 1 yellow packet of sweetener instead of sugar due to medical reasons and I used balsamic vinegar along with equal parts cider for added sweetness. I also added about 1/2 - 1/3 tsp of celery seed just because I love the taste in cole slaw. This might be my new favorite cole slaw recipe. Thank you for posting.
My favorite! Did take suggestions and cut the oil in half, used one Tbs of honey instead of sugar. Second time adding pineapple and cranberries.
Tasty recipe with less fat. I used slaw mix with added carrot and onion and tripled the recipe to feed a crowd. Everyone loved it.
For such a simple recipe, this is surprisingly good. Sometimes you're in the mood for a non-mayo coleslaw and this hits the spot.
