Marinated Summer Slaw


This "pickled" slaw is great for picnics and lactose-free diets since it doesn't contain mayo or sour cream.

Prep Time

360 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes


8 Servings


1⁄2 cup sugar
3⁄4 cup white vinegar
2 teaspoons mustard seeds, yellow
1 teaspoon salt
1 onion, red
1 cabbage, green
1 bell pepper, green
1 tablespoon pimentos
2 teaspoons celery seed


Mix together sugar, vinegar, mustard seeds, celery seeds, and salt in a large bowl.  Stir until sugar has completely dissolved.  Add cabbage, peppers, pimentos, and onions and toss to mix well.  Cover and refrigerate overnight or for up to 2 weeks.  The longer it marinates the more “pickled” it becomes.
