    Also contains celery and green peppers along with the cabbage and carrots. Has no mayo. Has oil and I think vinegar.
    If anyone has the recipe for this kind of cole slaw, I would so appreciate it.

    If you do a recipe search and then use the Recipe Sifter (under the "Top Recipes": heading on the red navigation bar) to include or exclude specific ingredients, this is what you get. I included celery seed and green peppers, excluded mayonnaise.,1509&exclingre=1774

    Thanks so much. I didnt know how to use that feature on the website. I think I'm gonna go with the oil/vinegar recipe. It seems the most similar to the dish I tried and fell in love with. You all have helped me so very much and I thank you so much!

    Italian Slaw

    Great for parties or bringing to a picnic.

    1 medium head cabbage (2½ to 3 lbs.)
    1 large onion
    ½ cup sugar

    1 cup vinegar
    ¾ cup salad oil (I use olive oil)
    2 tsp. sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. dry mustard
    1 tsp. celery seed

    Shred the cabbage and place in a bowl in layers alternating with minced onion. Sprinkle with sugar. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil in a saucepan. Pour hot mixture over cabbage. Cover and let stand for 4-6 hours or refrigerate. Stir a few times to mix ingredients while marinating. Keeps well for 2-3 weeks.

    I use this recipe for cole slaw to go with fish and always for picnic dishes or pot luck dinners. I love it and those who have had it always ask for the recipe. It calls for the vegs to be diced though, not shredded. It's calleed...
    This is a great dish for those summer outings where the food will be left out for a time.


    1 small head cabbage, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    2 cucumbers, chopped
    2 bell peppers, 1 red and 1 green, chopped
    1/4 cup onion, minced

    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 cup salad oil
    3/4 cup sugar

    Mix all together and pour over vegs. Let stand at room temp for one hour before putting in fridge

    * I use seasoned rice wine vinegar
    * I dissolve the sugar in the water before addding vinegar and oil

    This is the cole slaw recipe without mayo that I use which sounds like the one you are looking for. I haven't posted it at because there are so many recipes that are similar.

    Lasts for weeks in refrigerator in a large glass jar. Turn jar occasionally.

    1 large head cabbage, shredded fine (about 16 cups)
    1 Bermuda onion, or red onion, chopped or sliced
    1 or 2 carrots, grated
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 or 2 ribs celery, chopped (optional)

    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry mustard (no more)
    1 teaspoon celery seed or celery salt
    1 cup white vinegar
    2/3 cup Crisco vegetable oil

    1. Prepare vegetables and toss to mix in a large bowl or place directly into a large, clean glass jar.

    2. Combine sugar, salt, dry mustard, and celery seed in a saucepan. Add vinegar and salad oil. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. While still hot, pour mixture over the vegetables and toss well to mix.

    3. Cool. Refrigerate in a large glass jar for at least four hours or overnight before serving. Stir daily (or lay jar flat on a towel and roll around a couple of times).

    • Add other chopped vegetables such as cauliflower or broccoli.
    • Add 8 slices bacon well cooked, well drained, and crumbled or use bacon to garnish servings.
    • Instead of the onion use 12 green onions with tops, thinly sliced.
    • Remove the amount of coleslaw desired with a slotted spoon; drain well. Add Miracle Whip salad dressing to taste.
