Overnight Cabbage Slaw

Overnight Cabbage Slaw is a wonderful way to prepare Cole Slaw. It doesn’t have the heavy, thick Cole Slaw Dressing that most Cole Slaw recipes have. Instead, It uses a simple oil and vinegar dressing so that the salad is healthy, vegan, gluten free and low calorie. I shred the cabbage and the carrots. And if you prefer, you can also shred the green bell pepper and red onion. I usually just dice those two ingredients very fine.

I haven’t enjoyed this vintage recipe in decades! The first time I ate it was probably back in the late 70s or very early 80s. The recipe came from a friend and we were treated to several meals in her home the first few years of married life. She was an excellent cook and loved trying out new recipes. After eating this delicious salad, I immediately asked for the recipe.

As I was looking through my old cookbooks to find some healthier options, I stumbled across Overnight Cabbage Slaw which I haven’t made in years. I have a few of these versions of Cole Slaw that are called overnight recipes that use a vinegar-based dressing instead of the milky mayonnaise-based dressings. They are a delightful change and much, much healthier (usually).

Overnight Cabbage Slaw is really a great side dish for summer holidays, potlucks or any time you’re grilling out with friends. If you enjoy cabbage anyway, this is a marvelous way to get all your veggies.

You can shred the bell peppers and onions if you desire. I chose to finely chop them instead for a little more texture.
