You don't need cabbage to make a terrific slaw.

Crunchy, refreshing slaws are go-tos for topping tacos, accompanying barbecue and even eating on their own. While they're traditionally made with cabbage, you can also make amazing variations with alternative ingredients like celery and pickled peppers. Here, seven delicious slaw recipes that don't call for cabbage.

1. Green Bean Slaw

Food & Wine:

In this salad, tender haricots verts get tossed with crunchy strips of carrot, red pepper and parsnip.
