Recipe of the Week: Amazing Coleslaw
Created by Chef David, this is a regular item in the Go Figure owners’ home. The shredded apple and agave add a sweet twist that helps to reduce the standard “cabbage-y” taste that most coleslaw’s have.
Whisk together the following ingredients to make dressing:
-¼ cup mayonnaise
-2 Tbsp. olive oil
-¼ cup apple cider vinegar
-¼ tsp. pepper
-½ tsp. salt
-1 tsp. agave
Add the following:
-¾ apple, grated, Fuji or your choice
-½ small cabbage, cut or shredded fine **
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes for flavors to integrate. Unless you’re serving several people, this makes enough to have easy-grabbing veggies over the next few days. Take some to work to have with your lunch or snack!
Optional: a healthy addition is a couple finely chopped raw kale leaves, not stems. It tastes surprisingly good when mixed with the other ingredients.
** If you want to make this process even faster, you can buy pre-shredded cabbage in bags. Always look for the furthest out expiration date to get freshest items.
