Quick and Simple Cabbage Slaw

Quick and Simple Cabbage Slaw

You can never go wrong with another coleslaw recipe. As it happens, I tend to make it a little differently every time, tweeking it a little to fit with whatever I’m serving it with. I planned this one to be used as a topping for a crispy tempeh sandwich with tartar sauce, so I wanted to go with an oil-and-vinegar dressing, instead of something creamy. Old Bay is a classic seasoning to pair with seafood but is fantastic with almost anything, and it’s particularly good as a coleslaw seasoning.

Quick and Simple Cabbage Slaw
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 6 cups
  • ¼ large head of cabbage, cored and shredded, about 6 cups
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • ½ medium red onion, thinly sliced. Taste a piece and soak in cold water for 10 minutes if it is particularly ‘hot’
  • ½ cup distilled vinegar, you could substitute cider vinegar if you’d like
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together all of the vegetables
  2. Whisk together the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Slowly whisk in the oil and Old Bay.
  3. Pour the dressing over the cabbage and mix well. It shouldn’t need any extra salt, but should you find that yours does, add a little extra.
