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.
