This easy vinegar coleslaw recipe is a refreshing summer side dish that pairs well with veggie burgers, sloppy joes, skewers, and more!


  • 1/2 head green cabbage (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 head red cabbage (about 4 cups)
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  1. Thinly slice the cabbage and measure out 8 cups. Thinly slice the onion and the celery.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, cider vinegar, dill, chili powder, and kosher salt. Whisk in the olive oil tablespoon by tablespoon until a creamy emulsion forms. 
  3. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, red onion, and celery with the dressing. Add ground black pepper to taste, and additional salt as necessary. Serve immediately. (Note: The slaw is best served the day that it is made; leftovers do not save well. One idea is to only add dressing to the vegetables that you plan to eat.)
