Noodles, Red Cabbage & Peppers Coleslaw

The basic definition of coleslaw is a shredded cabbage salad with a vinaigrette consisting of vinegar/lime juice, vegetable oil, sweetener like sugar or honey, salt, and other seasonings. It is commonly served with grilled/fried/barbecued chicken or used as a sandwich filling. While most of the coleslaw dressings make a generous use of mayonnaise, I am feeling a bit bored with it these days. Had a bit too much of it in those sandwiches last week. So, I have skipped it and added some mustard sauce instead.

Read on for the recipe - 

Preparation Time - 15 mins (less if you are using a coleslaw mix off the supermarket shelves)

Ingredients -

  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup red pepper juliennes
  • 1/2 cup yellow pepper juliennes
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup cooked noodles

For the vinaigrette dressing -

  • 3 tsp vinegar/lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil/mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sugar/honey
  • 1 teaspoon mustard sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt ( I generally keep it less for salads and sandwich )
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper/paprika or as per taste

Preparation - Take all the ingredients of the vinaigrette in a large mixing bowl. Whisk it a bit to get it mixed up.  Throw in the rest of the veggies and the noodles. Toss together.

Chill for half an hour before serving.

Note - Vegan Mayonnaise is loaded with fiber and nutrients and has a low GI value.
