Light with a nice balance of sweet/sour, Vinaigrette Coleslaw has become one of my favorites from BGH.COM, and makes a welcome change from creamy coleslaw recipes. Consider it especially for outings, barbecues and picnics because it does not contain mayonnaise. Suit your taste or time selection of cabbage with all green, a combo of green and red, or bagged coleslaw mix. Over time leftover salad with large amount of red cabbage will turn the salad a light beet color, so gauge the amount you use accordingly, or make enough to serve with no leftovers, if that’s a concern. See Useful Links below for a variation of this recipe: Vinaigrette Coleslaw II.
