Ukranian Coleslaw

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Ranikabani

This recipe was given to me by my neighbour's Ukranian friend who told me to try it out. I made it for my son's baptism and I didn't think it would be a hit , but it went before I knew it! An unusual twist to boring coleslaw!

This is great! Not the same ole boring slaw. I did add a little shaved carrot for color and doubled the mustard(hubby loves mustard). One important note..While boiling the sauce, after about 2 min the vapors kind of burn your eyes and nostrils, so make sure the hood fan is on above your stove and stand back a little.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shred the cabbage as finely as possible (I chop it into VERY thin strips).
  2. It should measure about 10 cups.
  3. Place in a large bowl.
  4. Thinly shred the onions and add to the cabbage.
  5. Add 1/3 of the sugar and salt and mix well.
  6. Let stand while cooking the dressing.
  7. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and boil hard for 5 minutes.
  8. Immediately pour over the cabbage and stir very well.
  9. Refrigerate at LEAST one day (two or three days is preferable).
  10. This salad keeps well for about a week.
