Slaw - 3 Ways

Slaw....sounds boring and drab right?   Wrong!  We eat slaw often, almost once a week!  It's a great way to consume a variety of raw veggies and pairs well with SO many things!  Ever had butternut squash slaw?  It's a wonderful sweet and crunchy addition!  I even throw a handful of spinach into mine most of the time to add some hearty green color!   Once you have a good basic recipe, there are tons of variations!

 

Basic Recipe

1/3 head of green cabbage, pulsed in the food processor

1/3 head purple cabbage, pulsed in the food processor

1-2 carrots shaved up with a veggie peeler

OR

1-2 bags slaw mix (produce section, NOT the kit with dressing included, just the cabbage/carrot blend)

 

*You can really vary the amount here according to what you prefer, or for color!  I like a lot of purple in mine because "Purple Slaw" is an easy sell to 3 little girls! ;) The intensity of the chop is up to you too!  I like mine really chunky, but the kids like it spoonable!  Use your food processor to determine your chop! 

 

Simple Slaw Dressing

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup olive oil mayo, avocado oil mayo or greek plain yogurt

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

 

Place all ingredients into a jar and shake, shake, shake!  

 

Put everything into a big bowl with a tight lid, add dressing, stir, shake....refrigerate!
**Slaw is always best to me when it chills for a couple hours ahead***


Smokey Slaw Dressing

This is my ABSOLUTE favorite and fantastic in fish tacos, really any tacos, but especially fish/shrimp tacos, pairs well with all seafood! I like this one with crab cakes too!

 

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup olive oil mayo, avocado oil mayo or greek plain yogurt

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon chipotle in adobo chopped (or more if you are daring!)


 

Apple Slaw Dressing (The kids LOVE this one)
 

Use basic slaw mix, but add 1 apple, sliced into match-stix! 

 

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup olive oil mayo, avocado oil mayo or greek plain yogurt

1/3 cup ACV


Other variations to add in...
Butternut Squash, jicama, spinach, even beets  Just run them through the food processor...pulsing until you get the consistency you want!
