First off, I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend! I love Memorial Day for so many reasons, first and foremost, it’s an opportunity to honor our nation’s bravest men and women who have fought for our country, and secondly, it has become the unofficial marker of SUMMER! The season of BBQ’s, beaches, and just being outside to do…well, anything really. I spent most of Sunday grilling our meat for the week and decided to make some good ol’ cole slaw. I have never been a fan of the creamy style cole slaw ( too much mayo for me), so I came up with this recipe with the freshest ingredients and an olive oil / vinegar base. Man, was it yummy! ( Note: you will need a food processor with a shredding attachment, or finely chop the cabbage)
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes!
Serving Size: This is a large batch. 10+ servings
- 1 head of cabbage
- 1/2 head of red cabbage
- 1 cup of shredded carrots ( you can purchase them this way)
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of golden balsamic vinegar
- dash of salt and pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon of onion powder
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- Using your food processor with shredding attachment, shred your cabbages and add together in a large mixing bowl. Add your shredded carrots and the remaining ingredients. Mix all ingredients very well. You can serve the cole slaw right away, or you can refrigerate for 30 min+ and serve later. Note: The longer the flavors have to meld together ( with refrigeration) the better the flavor ( in my opinion).
