Found this in my local newspaper. It is from Barbara Roll, a professor of nutrition sciences at Penn State University and cookbook author. I especially like the crispiness you get from soaking the cabbage in ice water. No mayonnaise, so it is lower in calories!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill bowl with ice water and soak the cabbage for 30 minutes (to ensure a crisp slaw).
  2. Be sure to drain well.
  3. In large bowl, combine cabbage, peppers and carrots.
  4. Make dressing in separate bowl by whisking together sugar, vinegar, oil and pepper.
  5. Pour dressing over vegetable mixture and toss well.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

This is an excellent slaw ! I loved the light, crispy texture . The flavor was very nice, not too sweet or oily !! I WILL make again for sure !
