HNC summer ‘slaw – the perfect Summer Salad!
My husband hates mayonnaise. I mean REALLY hates it! So a ‘normal’ version of coleslaw is definitely not an option for us! That’s ok though – as I actually love this version even more. It’s lighter, fresher, and the mint, coriander and lime really give it a tropical feel. A perfect summer salad!
WHAT YOU NEED
1/2 a red cabbage, shredded finely
60g toasted macadamias, chopped coarsely
¾ cup coriander, chopped
½ cup mint leaves
2 celery sticks, thinly sliced diagonally
1 large carrot, peeled, cut into thin long strips (or use a julienne peeler)
½ red capsicum thinly cut into strips
4 green shallots, thinly sliced diagonally
¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp honey
Salt and pepper to taste
HOW TO DO IT:
1. To make the dressing, combine the oil, lime juice, and honey in a small jar and shake to combine. Season with salt and pepper, put in the fridge until ready to serve.
2. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, celery, carrots, capsicum, shallots, mint leaves, and coriander leaves. Toss with your hands.
