No mayo in this coleslaw! Cool and crunchy, this southwest coleslaw has thinly sliced cabbage with carrots, radishes and cilantro. Great as a summer side dish or piled high on tacos.

I make a killer meatloaf and love to make coleslaw to go along with it at times. Today we will be making coleslaw without mayo.

This particular coleslaw of my mother’s is one of my favorites and has a southwestern touch. The coleslaw is made with cabbage, carrots, green onions, and cilantro, and seasoned with rice vinegar. No mayo!

It’s light, cool, and crunchy, just what you want a coleslaw to be.

 

 

The ingredients for this salad can be prepped a day or two ahead of time. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge and toss with the dressing ingredients when ready to serve.coleslaw

Leftovers will keep for a few days in the fridge, but the coleslaw will become more wilted and watery over time.

 

No Mayo Coleslaw Recipe

 

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.

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.

2 Toss with dressing and serve: Right before serving, sprinkle with olive oil, rice vinegar, salt and pepper, and toss to coat.

Serve immediately.
