Saturday afternoon we had the family over for a BBQ to visit with my sister-in-law and her family who were in town visiting from Nebraska for a couple of days. Since I had not one, but two heads of cabbage in my fridge from our CSA I knew coleslaw needed to be made to try and control the ever growing veggie population in our refrigerator.

The recipe I used came from a weekly email received from our CSA organizer, Justine, at Denison Farm. The recipe is as follows:


  • 1 Cabbage
  • 2 Carrots
  • ½ Onion

Grate all of the above into a bowl. (I used a Salad Shooter to quickly chop up my veggies. It worked great and saved a bunch of time, if you have one, use it!)

Best invention ever!

  • 1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2/3 Cup Olive Oil (I only used ½ a cup because I ran out while making it and that worked fine)
  • Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Whisk to combine and toss with veggies

All chopped and ready to be tossed

Serve and Enjoy!

For being such a simple recipe it really was quite good. It’s one I am certainly going to hold on to for those times I want a no fail coleslaw recipe.
