Coleslaw

This was another slaw that I added mango, pomegranates and cilantro too.

This is a something I really love, however I find most people have been turned off from coleslaw because of grocery store versions. You can really make your own BETTER version at home.

Now every time I make coleslaw a t home I kind of change it up. Kind of depends on what I have in my fridge and if I want it a little more sweet or spicy.

Coleslaw

Half a Cabbage

2 small Cucumbers or half a large English Cucumber

3 Carrots, peeled

1 Pepper

1 Lime, zested and juiced

4 Garlic Cloves, minced

Salt, To taste

1 Teaspoon, Pepper

1 Tablespoon, Chili Flakes

2 Tablespoons, Avocado Oil

1 Tablespoon, Red Wine Vinegar

2 Teaspoons, Paprika

1 Teaspoon, Cumin

Couple Spoonfuls healthy Mayonnaise ( I prefer Avocado Oil)

  • Zest and juice 1 lime into your salad bowl
  • Mince your garlic and place into your salad bowl along with all your remaining spices.
  • Add Red Wine Vinegar and Mayonnaise
  • Mix together until completely homogeneous.
  • Slice the cabbage in half and cut out the centre.
  • Cut in half again.
  • Hold horizontally and slowly slice very carefully as thin you can make it.
  • Peel and cut the ends or bad areas off the carrots.
  • Grate carrots over the large holes in the bowl.
  • But your cucumber into thin slices, lengthwise and slice in small pieces, similarly to how you did your cabbage.
  • Cut pepper in slices lengthwise, and then cut into small pieces.
  • Place everything into your salad bowl and mix everything together.
  • Add a bit more mayo if you want a little more creaminess.
  • Make sure to take a taste test to make sure you like the flavor and spice level.

Now coleslaw is definitley a tad bit of a labor of love as it can take quite a bit of time to get all the veggies small, but chunky slaw is just as good.

I love having coleslaw with anything that has been on the BBQ and especially on pulled pork sandwiches! You can really mix different veggies and even fruits in as well. I love putting BBQ pineapple into my coleslaw for pulled pork sandwiches.
