The cabbage releases water as it sits; I recommend making the coleslaw the day before you plan to serve it.


  • 1 head green cabbage, cored and sliced thin
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large, nonreactive mixing bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots and onion.


In a nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, mix the vinegar, oil, honey, lemon juice, mustard seeds, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Take the dressing off the heat; immediately pour it over the vegetables. Toss well, cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours (overnight is best) before serving.

Serving Size = 1/2 cup
