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.
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
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
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!!
