when i make cabbage salad i mix yogurt and mustard instead of mayonnaise.
i also grate one fresh beetroot together with carrots and cabbage
fresh pasrsley suits well with yogurt dressing

if you want it crispy crash some salted peanuts and add them

Instead of my usual, super juicy slaw, I offer this combination of healthy veggies, and flavors:

1/4 cup green cabbage, grated
1/4 cup purple cabbage, grated
1/2 onion, finely minced
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 jicama, peeled and grated
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 fresh beet, washed and grated
1 honeycrisp apple, diced (optional)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

dressing:
1/4 cup apple juice (you could use orange or lime juice instead)
1 tsp. mustard powder
1 tsp. celery seed
1/4 cup cooking oil

Combine all salad ingredients together in a large bowl. Place dressing ingredients into a blender and blend together on medium setting for 20 seconds. Pour dressing into slaw and stir until all is coated.

For an Asian flair, omit the remove raisins, apple, and walnuts. Add grated bok choy, and diced water chestnuts.

For the dressing, use 3 tbs cooking oil with 1 tbs. sesame oil. add mustard powder, a dash of ginger root, and a dash of 5 spice powder. Add 2 tbs. rice wine vinegar, and 1 tbs. sugar. Blend until smooth. Mix with slaw.

The simplest cole slaw: Slice cabbage (red, green, savoy, whatever) extremely thin. Cut the strands to a reasonable length (2"?). Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then with good vinegar or lemon or lime juice and EVOO. Stir and voila, cole slaw.

Coleslaw | Define Coleslaw at Dictionary.com

I thought that slaw had mayo in it, and it was otherwise called a cabbage salad. Nope, I'm wrong.
