Green Garlic Slaw

This is adapted from a Bobby Flay recipe for Green Onion Slaw so if you can't get green garlic you can easily substitute with green onion, but it is a great way to use the green garlic in the summer.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1 cup green garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 serrano chiles
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 head red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves


Blend green garlic, vinegar, chiles, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and oil in a blender until emulsified. Place cabbage and red onions in a bowl, add the dressing and stir until combined. Fold in the cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let it sit for at least an hour before serving.

If it is too spicy (some peppers are hotter than others) add a little honey.

    I can’t imagine that adding honey will help if it turns out too spicy. (That’s like adding sugar to a recipe that has too much vinegar — the real solution to that is in adding baking soda, which will neutralize the vinegar). I think the only thing that could be done in this instance would be to add more cabbage, etc. in order to dilute the chiles.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion, I find that a little sweetness helps take away some heat when needed, but maybe that is just me.

    What exactly is green garlic & where do I get it?

    • It really is an early Summer vegetable I believe it comes up before garlic and they sell it at Farmer’s markets. I am making it again this weekend and will use green onions, it will still be great.

    Sounds delicious. Just one question:
    Your directions say to “Place cabbage and red onions in a bowl” … but the Ingredients list does not include red onions. How much does the recipe call for?

  5. This is a very pretty slaw recipe- very colorful!
