Coleslaw Recipe From Down Under

This coleslaw recipe is a little bit different than normal because it’s an Australian Coleslaw Recipe. A great dish for a picnic or a hot summer day at home. It’s full of flavor and nutritious too!


1 cabbage, shredded
3 carrots, grated
2 capsicums
3 onions
4 stalks of celery
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of red wine vinegar
3/4 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of mustard
1 teaspoon of celery seed

Here’s a video that shows you How To Shred Cabbage

And now back to the Australian Coleslaw Directions:

IMPORTANT! When handling the capsicums ALWAYS wear rubber gloves.

In a deep bowl, add the cabbage and carrots. Dice the remaining vegetables & mix into the cabbage and carrots.

Sprinkle the sugar over the vegetables.

In a medium sized pot, bring the oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and celery seed to a boil. Pour this hot liquid over the vegetable mixture. DO NOT STIR!

Allow it to cool, then cover and store in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

Pour off the excess liquid before serving.

We hope your coleslaw recipe turns out well, and – if you have shared it – your bowl comes back empty. Enjoy your Australian Coleslaw!
