Super Simple Slaw

I make coleslaw at least once a week. It’s super quick and easy if you buy the pre-shredded cabbage mix, or even in you buy a whole cabbage and slice it yourself. It only takes 5 minutes to throw together.

I like the basic recipe with a mayo-based dressing, but sometimes I will make one with vinegar and oil, kind of a sweet and sour version.

I start by chopping some scallions. Then I just mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and stevia in a large bowl, and add the bag of coleslaw and onions.

That’s all there is to it! Some people say that it’s best to chill the salad for an hour for the flavors to blend, but I often serve it immediately and it’s just fine.

This goes great with burgers, sandwiches, crab cakes, fish, pretty much anything. Enjoy!

Super Simple Slaw

Servings:  4 (1 cup each)

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated stevia (such as Truvia)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 scallions (green parts only), finely sliced
  • 1 (14-ounce) bag coleslaw mix, (or a half head of raw cabbage, finely sliced)


Add the first 4 ingredients to a large bowl and stir with a whisk to combine thoroughly.  Add the onions and coleslaw and toss.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Variations:  Use extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil instead of mayonnaise.
