Recipe by USA WEEKEND columnist Jean Carper
"Pack in antioxidants. The ultimate in simplicity and refreshing taste, this coleslaw is flecked with green, red and yellow vegetables, the colors signifying the presence of antioxidants (cabbage is thought to have anti-cancer activity). I like its crispy, sweet-and-sour taste, unlike that of a creamy coleslaw."

chopped or shredded cabbage
red bell pepper, chopped
thinly sliced green onions
cooked corn kernels
rice vinegar or other white vinegar
Splenda no-calorie sweetener (or substitute sugar)
Salt and pepper, to taste
finely minced jalapeno pepper, seeds and veins removed
A quick and easy recipe for a refreshing low-cal salad substitute. Great to fix ahead of time for that family cookout. Stays fresh in the fridge for days.
This was just okay. I wouldn't make it again.
I didn't have cabbage on hand, so i used red and green peppers, onion, carrots, and canned corn. Mixed up the dressing and tossed. It was delicious. I may make my salads like this more often!!!
This salad was terrific! I used a whole medium sized head of cabbage and a whole jalapeno pepper diced very fine. There was plenty of dressing. Husband absolutely loved it but it was just a bit too spicy for me. Will use a little less jalapeno next time but there will definitely be a next time!
This was very good. I was looking for a crunchy summer salad with lots of antioxidant ingredients that was filling, had no oil, and was low in calories. This definitely fits the bill. Followed recipe exactly except for jalapeno - used just a tad only because I'm not a fan of really spicey hot food.
Great twist on coleslaw. Loved the addition of corn to this and the jalapeño added just enough kick without overpowering the other flavors. I used bagged slaw rather than shredding cabbage and used 1/4 cup sugar rather than Splenda. My family and my parents really enjoyed this recipe.
This was excellent! I used sugar and cut way back but only due to personal preference. This is a perfect summer side dish. All of the different colors in this made it very appealing and "easy on the eyes". Thanks for sharing!
Omitted the hot pepper. Omitted the corn too, added some radishes and green bell peppers from the garden. Very tasty, kids helped and loved it. Great for low fat!
