I put the red onion in the jar with the dressing to allow it to “marinate” a bit and it cuts the bite of it a little. This doesn’t have to be done but it gives it a nice flavor.

I have used apple cider vinegar here too and although it gives it a slightly different taste, it works well.


  • 4 cups shredded cabbage mix, I like a mix with red and green cabbage and shredded carrots (you could also use some broccoli slaw)
  • 1 red pepper, medium sized
  • Dressing:
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar or vinegar of choice
  • ¼ cup olive oil, or veggie broth for oil free
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice about one lime
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Extra veggie broth to thin out dressing if needed , I used 1/4 cup
