Thoughts on Slaw

Ever think of making your “cole slaw” with a vinaigrette instead of all that mayonnaise?

Well, here’s how it will look–you can see the cabbage and carrots!!!

Depending upon how much cabbage slaw you buy, or slice your own, thinly, from a halved cabbage, for two people you might start with:

  • two cups of cabbage, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded or grated carrots
  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 4 TBL white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • several turns of freshly ground pepper
  • fresh parsley for color and a pop of flavor

Taste the dressing at this point.  If it’s not sweet enough for you, and you miss the sweetness of “cole slaw”, add a bit more honey. Stir dressing into your slaw, cover and refrigerate for awhile, so flavors can meld.

We have made a healthier salad here by avoiding granulated sugar and all the fat of mayonnaise. You get enough (good) fat from the olive oil.

And it’s quite pretty, especially if you add a little chopped red bell pepper!
