The Easiest Coleslaw You Will Ever Make! Healthy Too!

Vinegar Coleslaw, too good for words! Vinegar Coleslaw, too good for words!

Healthy cole slaw? Usually it’s loaded with mayonnaise and sugar… which is what makes it so good right? Wrong! I bought some shredded cole slaw mix at our local healthy grocery store, Earth Fare (love that place), and I wanted to try something different. I know we both like the mayo based cole slaw recipes, but would we like a vinegar based recipe? Hmmmm, it was time to give it a whirl. I found this recipe on the Food Network (Rachel Ray!) and it couldn’t be easier!

I had originally posted this with a rather sad image… because I kept forgetting to take a photo, ha ha… FINALLY have a photo that looks like the coleslaw before its three days old, sigh…

I was skeptical, but this recipe is delicious!

The only thing I changed below is that I reduced the sugar (original recipe calls for 2 T sugar), I used olive oil (instead of peanut or vegetable oil), I used only 1/2 tsp celery salt. More or less to taste… you can’t go wrong with this recipe!

OIL AND VINEGAR SLAW RECIPE – inspired by Rachel Ray – My version…


1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1-2 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 sack, 16 ounces, shredded cabbage mix for slaw salads

1/2 teaspoon salt (or celery salt) (or 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon celery seed)



Mix vinegar and sugar. Add oil. Add cabbage to dressing and season with salt and pepper. Toss with fingers to combine. Adjust seasoning. Let stand 20 minutes. Re-toss and serve.

Lasts a few days… Day 3 pictured above, looks tired, but tasted great!
