No Mayo Coleslaw

A mandoline will make slicing cabbage much much easier than using a knife.

If the seasoned rice vinegar adds too much sweetness for your taste, add a sprinkle of lemon juice. If you are using unsweetened rice vinegar, to get the right balance of acidity and sweet, sprinkle a little sugar over the salad and toss.

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 cups thinly sliced cabbage (about 1/3 to 1/2 cabbage)
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (packed) fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar (or plain rice vinegar with added sugar to taste)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method

1 Assemble the salad: Place the thinly sliced cabbage, grated carrot, radish slices, sliced green onions, and cilantro in a large serving bowl.
