This Paleo Deli-Style Coleslaw Recipe is a go-to salad that you should have in your fridge at all times for a quick side dish. I call it the perpetual salad because you only need to make the dressing up once and then just keep adding the coleslaw veggies as they get used up. Because it has such a high vinegar content, the dressing will keep for a very long time in the fridge. It is so simple to make using the convenient bags of ready-chopped veggies you can find at any grocery store. I like to use the broccoli slaw because of the added vitamins but the traditional cabbage slaw works equally well with this recipe.
You should make this up a day or two in advance as the veggies are actually marinated in the dressing. The longer it sits, the better it tastes which makes it great because you do not have to feel you have to use it up within a few days as you would with most salads.
Paleo Deli-Style Coleslaw Recipe
1 c cider vinegar
2 tbsp pickling spices
1 cup olive oil
2 tbsp grainy mustard or mustard seeds
1/4 c honey
12 oz pkg broccoli coleslaw or shredded cabbage
Place the vinegar and pickling spice in a small saucepan. Heat to a boil and then remove from heat and allow to steep for a few minutes to infuse the vinegar with the flavors. In a bowl or 1 qt Mason jar mix all of the remaining liquids together. Strain the vinegar and add to the other liquids while still slightly warm to help blend the honey into the mixture. Whisk together, or put the lid on the jar and shake until well mixed. Pack the broccoli slaw or cabbage into the jar with the liquid or into the bowl. There should be enough liquid to cover the veggies. If not, top it up with more vinegar. Pop it into the fridge and it will keep for months. As you use up the veggies, just add more.
To serve, just use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the veggies. You can then add other ingredients such as bacon and raisins or slivered almonds to your serving. (don’t add these to the marinade)
