It's the dead of winter here on the East Coast, which is typically when people crave heavy, warm, comfort foods. However, I'm of the opposite line of thinking, and crave things that make me think of warm weather.
I found this slaw recipe on The Daily Raw Cafe and immediately bookmarked it. I had all of the ingredients stocked in my pantry, so I gave it a go. I made a few moderations to the original recipe, and let me tell you - it's absolutely delicious. The dressing is quite fantastic, and I think it would be wonderful as a regular salad dressing or as a dipping sauce for spring rolls.
The recipe literally took me about 20 minutes to make, so this is one you should file away for when you have limited time but want something tasty. I also think this would be a great twist on the traditional coleslaws for those upcoming barbeques and spring get-togethers!
A variation of a recipe from the Daily Raw Cafe
1/2 c raw almond butter
1/4 c coconut oil
1 tbsp agave nectar
Zest and juice of one lime
1 tsp minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups Napa cabbage, finely shredded
2 cups red cabbage, finely shredded
1 cup carrot, finely shredded
1 tbsp fresh mint, minced
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
Combine all dressing ingredients in a small food processor. Process until well combined. In a large bowl, combine all slaw ingredients. Pour dressing over slaw ingredients and toss well. Allow to rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving, although overnight is best. Enjoy!!
