I got a version of this recipe over a decade ago, and I 've made it a countless number of times. It's a nice change from a mayonnaise-based slaw, and you actually make the vinaigrette in the microwave. Have a happy, healthy 2012!
Tangy Coleslaw - No Mayo
1-14 ounce bag coleslaw mix
1/2 cup onions or green onion, small dice
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Toss the bagged coleslaw mix and the onions together in a large bowl. Set aside. In a microwave-safe, 2 cup measuring cup, combine the sugar and vinegar and stir. Add the oil, celery seed and pepper. Cover the measuring cup with Saran wrap. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until the vinaigrette boils. Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables. Toss to coat. Serves 6-8.
