You might have seen me mention coleslaw occasionally in my meal plans. Cabbage is crazy good for you, and 'slaw is something that comes together in a flash, and is beloved by both Troy and myself. I've stopped trying to figure out things to make that Jack will enjoy. Screw that guy. I wish his tastebuds would mature...I wish he'd stop acting like a child.
So, if you need a quick side dish to throw together in-between commercials on HGTV, speed 'slaw should be on your radar.
1 package of shredded cabbage and carrots
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 celery seed (not celery salt)
1/4 tsp evaporated cane juice (a more pure form of sugar that isn't as processed)
1 tblsp rice vinegar
1/4-1/3 cup mayo
1) Place your shredded cabbage and carrot in a large mixing bowl.
2) Add the salt, pepper, cane juice, and celery seed.
3) Add the rice vinegar and mayo. I hate mayo, so I typically add it a little bit by little bit until it's reached the consistency you want.
4) Mix! That's it.
A fun variation is to add a bit of horseradish for a nice kick.
It's typically best after a few hours in the fridge to meld the flavors together.
