Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw

Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw

Made  times

"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."

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.

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 b...

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...

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...

We consistently try new recipes for coleslaw and always come back to this one. It's fabulous for a picnic as it is not only healthy but contains no mayo to worry about spoiling.
