If you’re looking for a ridiculously easy recipe for coleslaw, look no further than this one! Made with a simple homemade dressing, shredded cabbage, and carrots, this apple cider vinegar coleslaw is a healthy and hearty side dish that works well for any meal of the day.
This vinegar coleslaw recipe is so quick and easy to make it’s the perfect side dish for a summer BBQ. Although a more traditional coleslaw recipe calls for a mayo-based dressing, a vinegar-based dressing is a great way to create a healthy coleslaw that is still packed with flavour. For this particular recipe, I used an apple cider vinegar dressing because it’s a great combination of tangy and sweet and it provides numerous health benefits at the same time. Not only is apple cider vinegar known for aiding digestion and blood sugar regulation, but the cabbage and carrots help to increase the overall fibre content of the dish.
For the best results, be sure to slice your cabbage and carrots thinly using a sharp knife or mandolin slicer. Not only will this make for a better texture, but it will allow the vegetables to absorb more of the apple cider vinegar dressing.
Plus, although this healthy vinegar coleslaw recipe calls for a combination of green and red cabbage you can truly use any combination of cabbage you have on hand and, if you wanted to make this dish extra colourful, a couple of handfuls of freshly chopped kale is a great compliment to the tangy flavours in this apple cider vinegar coleslaw.
