I know that coleslaw seems more like a summer food but cabbage is still in season right now and coleslaw seems like a perfect side dish to so many of my favorite meals….BBq beef brisket, Carnitas and my most favorite…. fish tacos. I don’t make the typical cole slaw. I love lots of flavor so I add lots of different veggies and also on occasion I add some pineapple. Here is my favorite version of an “Island” coleslaw with a simple, nutritious and DELICIOUS dressing. COLESLAW 1/2 head green cabbage, chopped 1/2 head red cabbage, chopped 3 carrots, grated 1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped 3 green onions, finely chopped 1 jalapeno pepper, minced 1 cup finely diced Pineapple (optional) 1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds DRESSING 2/3 cup good quality mayonnaise (I prefer using mayo made with Avocado Oil) 2 TBS. Apple Cider Vinegar 3 TBS. Raw Honey Salt & Pepper to taste DIRECTIONS 1.Chop all the Veggies and Mix them together 2.Whisk together the dressing 3. Toss salad! I love this slaw alongside any hearty and meaty dish or just by itself with a drizzle of sciracha!! ENJOY!!
This is probably my favorite salad. It is definitely my favorite way to eat raw broccoli. This salad has a great crunch with broccoli, carrots and toasted almonds. then you get a little bit of sweet with the raisins and honey. It is well balanced and a great way to get raw food into your diet.
