When I first tried this recipe for Marinated Coleslaw, I never thought I’d love a coleslaw without mayonnaise as much as I did!
I first tried this coleslaw at a pig picking recently and just had to have the recipe.
This coleslaw is not your ordinary slaw… no mayonnaise, carrots or relish. Everyone always raves about it and asks for the recipe… so I knew it had to go on the blog.
It is marinated for at least 24 hours in a boiling hot vinegar-based marinade that wilts (and infuses with flavor) the cabbage, onions and green peppers.
How Many People Does this Serve?
This recipe is enough for a good-sized crowd and feeds at least 15 people.
The recipe as listed fills a 13-cup plastic container completely full, and can easily be halved, doubled or tripled to accommodate the number of people you’re feeding. So, the next time you need to serve coleslaw for a special occasion or to feed a crowd, you’ve gotta give this recipe a try… you won’t be disappointed.
