This sweet, tangy and crunchy health salad (aka "vitamin salad", or "Claremont salad" — named for the famed Claremont deli in Verona, NJ), is named as such because it lacks creamy mayonnaise or sour cream commonly found in most Russian and Eastern European salads, creating a lighter, slaw-like dish. The crunchy staple is beloved in New York City Jewish delis, and makes a perfect appetizer for Hanukkah.



  1. Combine the red and green cabbage, carrot, cucumbers, radishes, red and green bell peppers and onion in a large bowl. Add the vegetable oil, vinegar, sugar and 3/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.
  2. Cover the salad and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
