  • 1/2 whole red pepper sliced
  • 1 whole green onion sliced thinly
  • 1.5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 pound bag shredded coleslaw


  • Add all ingredients of dressing to a small mason jar (with a lid): soy sauce, lemon juice, oil & sesame oil. Put lid on jar and shake. Set aside
  • Mix together coleslaw and red peppers. Add salad dressing just prior to serving. Save remaining dressing to use on other vegetables or as a marinade.
  • Chop up 1/2 whole red bell pepper and 1 green onion. Place in medium mixing bowl.
  • Pour in 1.5 T soy sauce, 1 T lemon juice, 1 T canola oil, and 1/2 T sesame oil over chopped vegetables. Mix together.
  • Add 1/2 bag coleslaw (or 2 cups shredded cabbage) to dressed vegetables, mix together. Serve immediately.



  • If not serving whole recipe at once, mix dressing in separate bowl and mix together prior to eating. 
  • You can shred your own cabbage and other veggies too, but using a bag of pre-shredded coleslaw will be easier and save you time
