Forget mayonnaise-laden coleslaw. The bright, clean flavors in this version go well with everything from tacos to barbecue.

You have to really like vinegar to like this slaw. I like the fact that it is much more healthful than the kind laden with mayo, but I have to say I do like the creamy kind better. Hubby definitely isn't a fan of vinegar, so he didn't care too much for it. Probably won't make again.

Emptying fridge, had half a head Savoy cabbage, half a tiny head radicchio and half a sweet onion. With triple the shredded stuff, I tripled the dressing. And this is great! Will definitely make it again!

I adore vinegar-oil coleslaw dressings. This one is simple to put together and tastes great. I didn't have white wine vinegar so substituted rice vinegar.

tangy, tasty! added a few tablespoons of low-fat mayo to the dressing and it was really great!! Still had a tangy-ness from the vinegar, a little bit of creaminess, but still very light, crunchy, and refreshing. Had with bbq and can't wait to make again for sides to all sorts of dishes.

I made this recipe for a church picnic today and it was delicious! I used splenda instead of sugar and MCT oil instead of canola oil. It was a hit!
