Shredded vegetable coleslaw in a bowl
Give Coleslaw An Even Crunchier Texture And Skip The Mayo
You need a dressing when it comes to making coleslaw, but it doesn't have to be mayonnaise. If you're trying to keep things as crunchy as possible, vinaigrette is a good way to go.
In addition to providing a lighter dressing that won't wilt your veggies as quickly, vinaigrette gives you full control over the types and amounts of acid and fat you're adding.
For example, for an Asian-inspired coleslaw, you can use toasted sesame oil and rice vinegar, or an apple cider vinegar vinaigrette to accompany pulled pork.
