Slaw Party for One

I’ve been feeling summery lately, trying to fit in as many barbeques as possible.  A nice coleslaw provides a crisp compliment to my grillables.  This salad gets the bright pink hue from beets! I should warn you though, that this makes a giant amount of slaw, at least a giant amount for one person. I actually ate it for three meals one day.  SAVE ME!

"Pretty in Pink" Slaw - twocupsoflove.wordpress.com

Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 red cabbage, sliced very thinly
  • 1/4 c of red onion, sliced very thinly
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 beet, grated
  • 1 apple, julienned or grated
  • sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)

dressing:

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 c of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 hot pepper (mine was not very hot, so if yours is, I would start out with a small amount of hot pepper and go up, maybe a quarter of a jalapeno?)
  • 1/3 c sunflower seeds
  • 2 T agave
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1/2 salt
  • pepper, to taste

Directions:

Put all of the slaw ingredients in a large bowl. For the dressing, throw everything into the blender and blend away.  My blender is not very good, so there were still bits of sunflower seeds when I was done.  I put them into the slaw anyway for a little more texture. Toss the dressing with the slaw and garnish with the sesame seeds.

As this only uses half of a head of cabbage, you get to decide what to do with the other half.  I actually ended up making another batch of this when I was done.  So, Much. Slaw.
