MY SIMPLE COLESLAW; but wait, HOLD the MAYONNAISE and SUGAR, is JUST as DELICIOUS and is HEALTHIER!
Let’s be real, we don’t have to add a zillion ingredients to a slaw to make it taste great. I always love to add nontraditional ingredients that can provide intense and complex flavors to my recipes. Hence; this recipe is no different.
When you’ll look at my ingredients, you will not find vinegar, sugar or mayonnaise; but instead, lots of fresh veggies and cheeses to complement the cabbage, especially on a hot-humid day. And how does it taste? Well, you’ll be the judge!
