Cider Vinegar Coleslaw
Serves 4 to 6

This tasty, veggie-packed coleslaw, also courtesy of Beth Baugh, is flavored with apple cider vinegar and only a small amount of mayonnaise, making it much lower in fat than the traditional creamy version. Green cabbage is rich in antioxidants and vitamin B6; carrots are a great source of beta-carotene and folic acid. This coleslaw is a perfect complement to traditional barbecue foods such as hamburgers or veggie burgers and corn on the cob.

  • 4 cups (about 1/2 of a medium head) chopped green cabbage
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and thickly grated
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (low-fat canola oil mayonnaise works well, too)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Combine the cabbage, carrots, and onion in a big bowl.
  2. Pour in the vinegar and mix, then add the mayonnaise and stir well.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill and serve.
