8 servings, generous 1 cup each

Enjoy this crunchy, refreshing alternative to mayonnaise-based coleslaw on a taco or on the side.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Toss again to refresh just before serving.


  • 6 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage (about 1/2 head) (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled and grated carrots (2 to 3 medium)
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Place cabbage and carrots in a colander; rinse thoroughly with cold water to crisp. Let drain for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk cilantro, vinegar, oil and salt in a large bowl. Add cabbage and carrots; toss well to coat.

Ingredient Note: To make this coleslaw even faster, use a coleslaw mix containing cabbage and carrots from the produce section of the supermarket.
