  • 1 head green cabbage chopped
  • 1/2 head purple cabbage chopped
  • 2 cups carrots chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped (optional)
Vinegar Dressing
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 1 Tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
  1. Using a sharp knife, chop the green and red cabbage and combine in a large serving bowl.

  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw vegetables just before serving and toss gently to combine.

  3. This vinegar coleslaw is best eaten day-of (the cabbage will begin to go soggy after a while), but it will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
