I like cabbage, and cole slaw, but most of the recipes are too heavy and have too much mayo. I feel as if I’m eating mayo, rather than cabbage. This no mayo healthy cole slaw recipe is different. It’s healthy and has no mayo at all.
I was at The Second Avenue Deli, which is a restaurant that specializes in food that is definitely not healthy: fried pierogies, chopped liver, and enormous pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. But, before you get your main dish, they plop down a big bowl of pickles and another of their “health salad.” The salad is delicious! And no mayo.
The next day, I found a recipe, which I have adapted. I reduced the servings and made a few substitutions and changes.
Delicious! And it’s easy too. It’s great as a side dish with a turkey sandwich (or on top of one), or along with a hot dog. Or, pastrami, of course. Because mayo and pastrami is a shonda (a terrible disgrace, especially in public).
Substitutions and Variations for No Mayo Healthy Cole Slaw Recipe
- Use green cabbage (which is what the original recipe said)
- Make it with green pepper (again the original recipe)
- Add some cucumber
- Try apple cider vinegar
- Make it Asian with rice vinegar, soy sauce. and sesame oil
