Colorful Cole Slaw

From Natalie:

My last post was a delicious cabbage dish using 1/2 of a head of red cabbage and 1/2 of a head of  green cabbage.  What do you do with the other halves?  Cole Slaw, of course!  Although my husband loves mayonnaise, he won’t find any in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head green cabbage
  • 1/2 head red cabbage
  • 3 carrots
  • 4-5 radishes
  • 1/2 red onion
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 lime
  • Crazy Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Celery Salt

Cut the cabbages in strips and put into a large bowl.

Peel the carrots and use the grater with the wide opening, (the one you would use to make potato chips), to make wide carrot strips.  Shred the radishes and chop the onion into small pieces.

Cover the mixture with the vinegar and oil (approximately 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/3 cup of oil).  Squeeze one lime over the salad. Add Crazy Salt, pepper and celery salt to taste. Toss well.

Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour so the seasonings and the vinegar get a chance to flavor the cabbage.

Serve cold.  The colors are a beautiful addition to your summer table. Enjoy!
