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 love this slaw alongside any hearty and meaty dish or just by itself with a drizzle of sriracha.
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.
½ head green cabbage, chopped
½ head red cabbage, chopped
3 carrots, grated
½ bunch cilantro, finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 C finely diced Pineapple (optional)
⅓ C toasted slivered almonds
⅔ C good quality mayonnaise (I prefer using avocado oil mayo)
2 T apple cider vinegar
3 T raw honey
salt & pepper to taste
1. Chop all the Veggies and Mix them together
2. Whisk together the dressing
3. Toss salad and enjoy!
