This slaw takes days to make, so it's hard to keep up with having it ready for my family! We eat this several times a week! This goes great with my husband's Texas BBQ!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put sliced cabbage into a large sealable plastic bag.

  • Whisk red wine vinegar, sugar, balsamic vinegar, salt, onion powder, seasoned salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour into bag with the cabbage. Massage the bag to ensure cabbage is completely coated with liquid. Squeeze as much air from the bag as possible and seal.

  • Marinate cabbage in refrigerator, massaging the bag several times a day, until the cabbage is softened and the marinade is deep purple in color, at least 2 days.

  • Pour olive oil into the bag and mix with the cabbage mixture. Seal bag and refrigerate 1 hour more before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Apple cider vinegar can be used in place of red wine vinegar, if you prefer.

I use the slicing disk on my food processor to slice the cabbage as thinly as possible.
