If you put too much vinegar in coleslaw add more cabbage, oil, mayonnaise or sugar to the recipe.
You can also rinse your coleslaw in water and then re-add the wet ingredients if you have more on hand.
Some vinegars can be too acidic. Use a mellow aged vinegar, or a red wine vinegar that has been on your shelf for at a year in your recipes. Malt vinegar has a sweeter taste than some vinegars. White Balsamic vinegar has a very strong taste.
Apple cider vinegar is one of the most popular vinegars used to make coleslaw. Consumed alone it can help prevent indigestion, soothe a sore throat, cure hiccups, settle an upset stomach, get rid of bad breath, and whiten teeth.
