Cabbage Slaw and homemade moonshine, friends! It’s the summer life of a Macedonian! 

But Hiiiii! Welcome to my shredded veggies shrine! Whether in salad form or otherwise, I am a veg junkie!

Buuuut, I like cakes, too. I just inhaled a slice of this Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake for breakfast… for the rest of the day, I’ll be enjoying Protein Shakes. 
I could’ve just reached for my uber healthy Blender Muffins, but noooooooo. The voices in my head were screaming, CAKE CAKE CAKE! 

Although cakes are always most important, there’s lots more delicious things we need to talk about. Like, Ribs and Slaw.

Remember those Barbecue Ribs from the other day? THOSE with THIS  = summer food Heaven! Add shots of homemade moonshine to the mix and you’ve got 4 happy people singing patriotic songs from sun-up to sun-down.   Yah. That happened. 

You ought to know though, I am not one to enjoy a traditional coleslaw. The one with mayonnaise and honey and celery seeds… nope, no thanks. The mayo throws it off for me. But what DOES work for me is Apple Cider Vinegar with mustard, sans mayo. Love love love.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

In this recipe I used STAR’s brand new Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar which is made with organically grown apples, and it is a perfect way to add delicious flavor to any salad, including this Red Cabbage and Carrot Slaw.

CABBAGE SLAW

Though I really dislike shredding cabbage – mostly because I end up shredding at least one finger during the ordeal – I pinkie promise that you will be rewarded for your time spent shredding and cutting in the best way possible when you whip up the dressing. The flavors are like a Summer explosion in your mouth. Just completely delicious. And that crunchy cabbage texture is every.thing.

Now, think about the goodness of a tangy slaw and remind yourself why you don’t need the creamy one. Let’s just all admit that sometimes an Apple Cider Vinegar is the Belle of the ball. The bees knees. The top banana! You get the point.

    I made this as described but used 1/2 head of small red cabbage, did not use the carrots or the green onions and then added the following: One thinly sliced – yellow onion, cucumber, green pepper, yellow pepper and adjusted the dressing proportions to accommodate the extra ingredients. Served with cold sliced pork chop. Delish!

  2. Tee

    You had me at “Macedonian” – it’s where my grandpa immigrated from a long time ago! It’s good thus far – I’m impatiently waiting for it to “meld” and I’m sure it will be delish. It does look beautiful, regardless!

  3. Ivonne

    I just made this for lunch and it was not that hard to make and it was totally great! All the flavors fit together somehow and my boyfriend even had 2nds and 3rds which was not usual for him with vegetables !

  4. Sam

    Something is missing with this recipe! Am sorry if am giving u 2 stars but thank God I didn’t put the dressing in all the salad cause no one wanted to eat it .. am sorry..

  5. I just made this beautiful slaw. I made two changes. One was I did not have green onion so I used shredded yellow onion. Two I added a vegetable called Kohlrabi, also called German turnip, is a biennial vegetable, a low, stout cultivar of wild cabbage. It is the same species as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, Savoy cabbage, and gai lan. It can be eaten raw or cooked and is very good,. Turn out great!
    Thank You!

    Wow, this is the best salad drsg! It has a bite maybe from the Dijon. I added 1/4 tsp. turmeric toget some added antinflammatory benefits.

    1. There is a print button inside the recipe box – just scroll down to the recipe box, find the photo within the recipe box and underneath it you’ll find the “print” button. It will print out the recipe, only.

    Wow this is so tasty!! I added in fresh coriander (cilantro) and left out the chilli as it was for the kids too. This will become a regular I think!

      1. LindaR

        Very tasty and beautiful colours. I made it to go with veggie lasagne. A lot healthier than the creamy coleslaw, chips or garlic bread. Will make again. Thank you.

    1. Hi! If you mean couple of hours ahead of time, then no, it should be okay. But if you want to make it the day before, I would advise to not add any dressing to it until you are ready to serve. Or an hour before that. I hope this helps. 🙂

  8. Denise Gravett

    Delicious! I really needed something to go with ribs, I was responsible for a salad. Surprisingly yummy. I also used the sliced apples and a little cumin. Thanks!

  9. Diana

    Ts is great en though I have to leave out the mustard due to allergies If you have trouble grating things why not use a food processor? Or like I do some times, use a good knife and slice it really thin. Keep up the great recipes.
