Easy Vinegar Coleslaw

I have taken an unplanned hiatus from blog this spring, but I'm back in time for Memorial Day with another recipe to share! We went through such a long winter and some other stuff that was going on in my life, but my love of food and sharing is back with this lovely weather. I found this amazingly simple and delicious recipe for coleslaw. It is also probably the healthiest recipe for coleslaw that I've made. I used about 1 pound of cabbage that I already had in the fridge, but often I buy the pre-shredded slaw mix in the grocers produce section. Toss the slaw mix with this vinegar and oil dressing and it's done in about 5 minutes and tasted delish too! Can't get much easier for a side dish and perfect for a topping for your sandwiches too! Here's the recipe.

Easy Vinegar Coleslaw
adapted from here
1 pound bag of slaw mix from your grocer
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 cup diced onion, I used Vidalia
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons oil - I used canola
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
fresh ground pepper to taste

In a large bowl mix the vinegar, sugar, oil salt pepper and celery seed. Stir in the shredded cabbage, onion and carrot and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
 Have a wonderful holiday and remember all the veterans who have served our great nation.
