Best Coleslaw Ever – Hold the Mayo! If you take this coleslaw to a potluck party, I can guarantee the bowl will be emptied and requests for the recipe will abound! Not only is this one of the most colorful coleslaw salads – there is no mayonnaise or oil in the dressing.
This sweet, tart and tangy coleslaw delightfully startles your taste buds with a south of the border flair with it’s light chipotle flavor. So, without further ado, here is one of the best coleslaw recipes on the planet!
¼ cup Unfiltered Organic Cider Vinegar
2 Tbls Organic Coconut Palm Nectar (low-glycemic natural sweetener)
½ – ¾ Tsp Sea salt (Himalayan, Celtic, or Sun Fire Salt are the best!)
1 Tbls Roasted Chipotle Sauce
¾ lb Green Cabbage, thinly shredded
2 Carrots, shredded
½ Red Bell Pepper, seeded and cut into thin julienne strips
½ Yellow Bell Pepper, seeded and cut into thin julienne strips
6 large Red Radishes, trimmed and cut into thin julienne strips
2 Tbls (or more) Fresh Cilantro, chopped (also known as Coriander or Chinese Parsley)
1. To make the dressing, in a small bowl whisk the vinegar, coconut palm syrup, salt to taste, and chipotle sauce.
2. In a bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrots, bell peppers and radishes. Pour the dressing over the vegetables, add the cilantro, and toss well. Serve immediately.
This is a great raw salad that you can eat throughout the week. Prepare all the vegetables, place them in a ziplock bag, squeeze all the air out and seal. This keeps the veggies fresh. Also, if you use ceramic knives to cut the veggies, your salad will look like you just cut it – even after an entire week. Make two batches of the dressing and put in a glass container (a small recycled hot pepper bottle works great). Then dish out a serving, sprinkle with dressing and enjoy every last crunch of this amazing salad.
Helpful tip: Make sure all or most of your veggies are organic – it makes a big difference – not only are you avoiding a toxic load of chemicals, but you’re getting full mineral content to feed your body crucial elements to sustain health. Also, the Coconut Palm Sugar Nectar and Coconut Palm Sugar Granules are the latest all natural organic low-glycemic sweetener hitting the market. It can be found online and possibly in your local health food store.
I honestly feel sorry for those who pride themselves on eating junk food, foods grown with poisons and GMO Frankenfoods. Unless they are an amazing alchemist & metaphysician – they are likely to experience serious health concerns down the line. I warned a guitarist friend of mine who refuses to eat nutritious foods and drinks pepsi like a fish, that he was pushing his body with his junk-food diet. A couple years later, I received a call from him asking for advice as to why the tendons in his arm was seizing up while playing. The reason was obvious to me – his body was in an acidic state due to all the sugars, dehydrated from not drinking water and malnourished due to a diet of dead, poisonous, sugar-laden junk food.
