12-Second Coleslaw


When people think of coleslaw, they think of that bowl of soggy, shredded cabbage sitting at the end of the picnic table. This is a completely different approach; a fresh-shredded cabbage prepared as a fast (12 seconds adding ingredients, 30 seconds to mix), crisp, low-cal, low-carb, slightly spicy, and delicious side dish that you should be eating as part of your regular veggie side-dish rotation. Serve immediately after mixing.

6 servings


  • 1 (10 ounce) package angel hair-style shredded cabbage

  • 2 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing

  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Stir cabbage, Thousand Island dressing, rice vinegar, hot sauce, and salt together in a bowl with a fork until evenly mixed.

Cook's Note:

I didn't because I only had 12 seconds, but you can certainly add any finely shredded raw vegetables to this coleslaw so yours won't look as boring as mine.
