Not your grandma’s Cabbage Slaw

I know what you’re thinking. I was thinking the same thing. Cabbage coleslaw? Bleeeccch! Well this version couldn’t really be further from Bleeeccch! This is another fantastic recipe from the fabled Marissa. I know many of you have never seen her. Maybe she doesn’t exist… but if you believe she just might. Anyway, this is the stuff if you need a nice fresh summery/fallish/ really anytime salad and are tired of the boring old greens and with Newman’s Own dressing you usually make. Yeah, I’m watching you. Let’s spice it up. I can hear your hunger from here.

1 Head of red cabbage
1/2 Red pepper
1/2 Walla Walla sweet onion
4 carrots grated.
3/4 juice of lemon
1 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp oregano
4-5 Tbsps olive oil

batterjunkie-1 The details of this slaw are inconsequential, it’s not hard to make. It is however hard to make correctly. Thinly chop the red cabbage, red peppers and onions. Grate those carrots and toss them all in bowl. The thin-ness of the chop seems to regulate taste, the thinner the better. Now mix in the other ingredients and in just a few minutes, you’re done!batterjunkie-2Let this mother sit for a while so that the flavors can really marry. This is really the key to making it good!

Thanks Marissa!
