Savvy Savoy

Oh hello sunshine… finally we are crawling out of this abyss of cold and our weather has actually reached double digits and stayed there, now we just have to bring on the heat. So I thought in honour of this lovely sunny day that I would celebrate the sun and eat cabbage.

Certain foods make me think of specific times of the year, and for some reason coleslaw makes me think of warm weather and backyard barbecues. And if it’s a bbq at the Nilsen’s then you’ll be sure to find: potato salad, a cheese ball, veggie tray with honey mustard dip (which is just way too much mayonnaise and sour cream with a little bit mustard in it) and enough chocolate cupcakes to feed the entire neighbourhood. My mom likes her guests to roll out at the end of the night.

Ok back to the cabbage, but not just any cabbage, the SAVOY cabbage.

Once you top this bad boy with the dressing I’ve whipped up (it is so good I want to drink it with a slice of lime and a little umbrella) you are going to be eating this coleslaw by the boat loads. Cause nothing says summer like a boatload of coleslaw.

 

 

I call it my Savvy Savoy Coleslaw

Ingredients:

1 savoy cabbage
4 large carrots
4 radish
8 spring onions
Dressing:
2 limes
2 tbsp. organic peanut butter
1 tbsp. GF soy sauce
2 tbsp. avocado oil
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. chillies
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Peel the outer layer of the cabbage off and toss it, I call this the everyone touched me at the grocery store layer, then wash and shred the cabbage as finely as possible (manually or with a food processor, your call)

Next peel and shred the carrots and radish and toss in with the cabbage.
Chop the spring onions and add to the mix.
Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Toss everything together in a large serving bowl and serve, garnish with some fresh coriander.

Salad should keep in the fridge for at least 2 days… if it lasts that long
