Mayo FREE Slaw...

I was watching a local food show yesterday, and this recipe for a Mediterranean MAYO FREE slaw popped onto the screen and I jumped up and had to try it.  I LOVE CABBAGE... and I had just purchased 3 huge heads the day before... and this recipe was ready in minutes!

Here's what  you'll need...

1 or 2 heads of sliced cabbage

4 shredded carrots

1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 cup vinegar (I used Apple Cider Vinegar)

salt to taste

pepper to taste

juice of one lemon

1 tsp celery seed or fresh sliced celery (I used the seeds... less water, all the flavor)

1 tsp sugar (or not)

Pinch of dill weed

Toss it all together, place it in a Lock n Lock or a tight container and refrigerate until you wanna devour it.

You can add any veggies you love to this... peppers, cukes, onions... you name it...

It DOES NOT taste like regular mayo coleslaw... it's a different flavor profile... but when I tried it last night... right after it was made... I loved it.
I am not a mayo fan... one jar lasts us an entire year... so this was a great alternative that has a clean, fresh taste...
I hope you'll try it...


  1. LOve Cabbage, love slaw, this recipe lookS Delicious!!

  2. I am from Croatia and this is how they do it so much better than the american mayo kind

  3. your before and after pictures are amazing! You look great and a lot younger

  4. Mmmm... I'll have to give this a try. I'm a big coleslaw fan, but I always make it with mayo. I guess this version would be a little healthier for me huh?

  5. Sandra,

    I definitely have to try the slaw. It's hard to find one with no mayo.


  6. I'm going to try this, it's super easy. Apple cider vinegar is supposed to be extra good for you.

  7. oh Yum going to try this too..
