  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon celery seed
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Slaw Instructions

  • Dice half of a medium size green bell pepper and combine in a large bowl with shredded cole slaw

Dressing Instructions

  • Combine all dressing ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved; pour mixture over slaw, cover and refrigerate
  • When ready to serve; mix slaw well and drain; place in large serving bowl and garnish with green onions (optional)


  • No Mayo Coleslaw is a quick, easy and healthy alternative to traditional mayonnaise-based slaws
  • Because it has no eggs, it can sit outside at a barbecue or pool party without going rancid
  • It tastes best after the marinade has set in the slaw for awhile; drain additional marinade prior to serving
