Slaw is so good guys! It goes on so many things- like sandwiches, bowls, and TACOS- and makes a delicious side! Today I’m sharing an amazing, fresh slaw recipe that’s lightened up with a super tasty dressing using avocado. Yum!
We’re keeping it super simple and using just one kind of cabbage and some carrots in this slaw. And if we’re going to pick just one cabbage, it’s gotta be purple cabbage! I grated up some purple cabbage and my carrots and combined them in a large bowl. This step doesn’t take very long at all, but if you’re looking for a speedier option, you can always grab a bag of pre-shredded cabbage mix at the grocery store.
The dressing is really what makes this slaw- it doesn’t require any blender whatsoever, and is so tangy and delish! I mashed up half of an avocado and mixed in some lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, and lots of salt and pepper. So easy, right? When mixed in with the veggies, the dressing loses its green colour, and so you don’t even notice that you’re eating avocado- all you taste is a fresh and amazing slaw!
This is a great addition to any supper, and would be so good on my Veggie Tacos, Epic Veggie Sandwich, or as a finishing touch to a bowl or salad! It’s so healthy, delicious, and bright, and I love how simple it is to make!
