This crunchy slaw doesn't use cabbage. Instead, it's loaded with veggies that marinate in a sweet-tart vinaigrette. We like to let it marinade overnight and then serve it the next day for maximum flavor. It's a nice accompaniment to a casserole-type main dish, or to serve with a sandwich for lunch.
- Make vinaigrette: in small saucepan on stove, combine vinegar, oil and sugar. Bring to boil and simmer 3 minutes. Immediately pour hot vinaigrette over raw vegetables (the hot dressing blanches the raw vegetables and keeps them colorful and crunchy).
- Drain all canned vegetables; add to slaw.
- Add salt and pepper. Store in refrigerator overnight to allow flavors to develop (although we eat some right away).
- If desired, slice a fresh avocado and place on top.
