Sweet 'n Sour Picnic Slaw

Updated: Jun 19

I call this tart and tempting recipe "Picnic" because it has no mayo and will last longer in the park on your holiday!

This recipe was developed specially for Good Day DC (and now website). You won't see it in my best-selling cookbook, however there are plenty of other great summer side recipes throughout.

Sweet 'n Sour Picnic Slaw

Makes 8 generous side servings


1/3 cup red wine vinegar

Juice of 1 lemon

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1 generous tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon Tabasco Green Jalapeño Sauce

1 scant teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

1 pound (or a bit more) shredded cabbage, red cabbage, carrots

1 medium red onion, sliced in thin half rings


In large bowl, briskly whisk together vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, honey, hot sauce, salt, pepper.

Slowly whisk in olive oil to complete the dressing. To bowl, add cabbages, carrots, onion. Toss with dressing, lightly combine all.

Chill, covered, at least one hour before serving.


You can find your cabbages and carrots pre-cut in some stores, or, like the photo below, do the knife work all by your amazing self!
