As my family is very strict about dieting, so to prepare tasty coleslaw for my family I had to research a lot. Finally, I have got my desired recipe from Primanti Bros.

Nevertheless, none will think of preparing coleslaw without giving any mayo. Because of the usage of apple cider vinegar, the flavor becomes super tangy. So, without wasting time, go for the recipes.

Among all vinegar-based coleslaw, I have tried, this one is the best for its perfect timing. For maximum result, wait 4 hours to enjoy non-mushy, perfect coleslaw without gaining any weight.

With the flavor of celery and tanginess of apple cider vinegar, the coleslaw tastes heavenly.

Primanti Coleslaw Secret Ingredient:

  • 1 (about half of a medium-size head, not more than 1 pound) Napa green cabbage, shredded or chopped (about 6 cups)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of celery seed
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper 

How to Make Primanti Brothers Coleslaw Step by Step: 

Step 1: Take a colander and set it over a medium glass bowl. Add the shredded cabbage, 1/2 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of celery seeds.

Mix all the ingredients nicely, and let sit for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

Step 2: When done, you will notice the cabbage will get wilted to about 4 cups. 

Step 3: Now drain off the liquid in another bowl. Rinsing it, dry the glass bowl before transferring the wilted cabbage mixture to the bowl. 

Step 4: Pour 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil and 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar. Toss the bowl to mix firmly. 

Step 5: To adjust the taste, season the coleslaw with freshly ground black pepper. 

Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic cover and refrigerate it overnight before serving.

  • 2 ounces of mayonnaise
  • Handful cooked French fries. 
  • 1/2 cup of primantis coleslaw 
  • 2 thin slices of tomato

Directions Step by Step: 

For the coleslaw: 

Step 1: Take a small saucepan. Add apple cider vinegar and vegetable oil into it, bringing up to boil over medium heat. 

Step 2: Add sugar into the saucepan and stir continuously until the sugar gets fully dissolved. 

Step 3: Remove the saucepan from heat and let stand for 10-15 minutes at room temperature to cool it completely.

Step 3: Smear thickly one side of Italian bread with the mayonnaise.
