Rainbow Slaw

5-6 radishes (optional), thinly sliced

1/3 cup sliced banana peppers (or pepperoncini – that’s what we used), finely chopped

1 bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped

1 lime (but, we used two)

2 tablespoons (or more) of canola oil (we used grapeseed; avocado, etc. would be good, too ;))

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup sliced green onions

6 cups of shredded cabbage

*we made an additional dressing recipe to add more flavor and indulgence:

1/2 to 1 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar

Whisk together well.  We then added this dressing to the recipe’s dressing – lime and oil.

1. Shred the cabbage, slice radishes, chop peppers, chop the cilantro leaves.

2. Stir in all ingredients and, then blend ’em a little and, pour the dressing.  Mix                       thoroughly.

Yum!  Yum!  YUM!  There are sooo many flavors in this meal.  Your tongue will be very alive!  EnJOY!

Love,
