Simple Summer Slaw

Here is a quick recipe I threw together for a friend’s cookout yesterday. I should rephrase – quick if you have a food processor, but doable if you don’t. I was able to chop all the vegetables in less than 5 minutes with the food processor. If you don’t have time for that, you could by pre-shredded cabbage and broccoli slaw mix at the store. I don’t measure my liquids, so I am guestimating below…feel free to tweak as needed.

Simple Summer Slaw

Ingredients

  • 2 pound head of purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1 pound celery (1/2 package), finely diced
  • 5 whole carrots, julienned
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 pound radishes, julienned
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 apple, diced (something tart works well)
  • 1/2 cup silvered almonds (chopped walnuts would be great too!)
  • 2/3 cup thaini
  • 1 TBSP real maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Mix all the vegetables, cranberries, apple, and almonds together in a very large bowl (I had to use 2 bowls)
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the thaini, syrup, and vinegar together.
  3. Pour over vegetable mixture and spread throughout. A little goes a long way, so just make sure to coat well.
  4. Let sit for at least 8 hours before serving. The longer the better – slaw gets its awesome taste after the cabbage ferments a little with the vinegar, so make sure you let the ingredients do their thing 🙂
