Red Cabbage Slaw
An Italian-style dressing and fresh basil breathe new life into an easy slaw.
Why This Recipe Works
Bored with classic, mayonnaise-rich coleslaw recipes, we wanted a lighter option with a brighter flavor. We found that coleslaws can be just as good with an olive-oil-based vinaigrette as they are with mayonnaise, and from there came up with our Red Cabbage Slaw recipe. An Italian-inspired vinaigrette sweetened with balsamic vinegar and honey paired perfectly in our Red Cabbage Slaw recipe. Fresh herbs like basil added big flavor and visual appeal with a minimum of effort. Bell pepper could be sliced thin and adds sweet flavor to the cabbage.
