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!
