No Mayo Vinegar Coleslaw
I prefer coleslaw that is made with vinegar instead of mayonnaise. It is lighter, healthier and works fantastic as a topping on pulled pork sandwiches or tacos.
The other major bonus to vinegar based slaw is not having to worry about rancid mayo. If you are bringing coleslaw to a picnic, potluck or bbq you may not be able to refrigerate it before serving.
Is Coleslaw Good For Health
The mayonnaise based coleslaws can be high in fat and calories due to the mayo. But this slaw recipe is absolutely healthy! Cabbage is low in calories and high in vitamins.
