Slaw, sans mayo!

I was at the store last week picking up the ingredients for our St. Patty's day dinner and cabbage was on sale, 2 for $1.00. I figured, why not. After using one head in out corned beef and cabbage evening, I need to come up with something to use the other head of cabbage for.

So i started flipping through mound of new recipes and came across slaw. My husband loves slaw, especially slaw with no mayo. The came the idea of homemade fish sticks, baked fries and slaw for dinner. Whaaaaalaaaa!

It's super easy, can be made in advance and outside of the cabbage, you have all the ingredients in your pantry.  It's tangy, not too sweet and will be great for the not-so-far-away BBQ season!


3/4 c. coarsely grated onion (or finely chopped)
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. Ketchup
4 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium head of green cabbage
1/2 head of purple cabbage
2 c. grated peeled carrots

Whisk first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  Add cabbage and carrots;  toss.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and chill until serving.
