I'm a big fan of cabbage, and love eating it in the summer time. What I'm not a big fan of is creamy dressing on coleslaw, I'm a vinaigrette girl through and through. Coleslaw is an easy side in the summer, and this has a tangy fresh dressing that is quick to make and easy to double if you need something to take to a bbq. I must make it 2 times a week in the summer.
In a container with a lid (mason jar works great) put in the following and give it a good shake, and let sit for about 10 min. After sitting, shake up again, toss with 1 bag of prepared coleslaw cabbage and then let marinate for at least 20 minutes. The longer this sits, the better it gets!
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp celery salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- couple pinches of salt
If you don't have red wine vinegar, you can also use white vinegar and a tbsp of red wine.
