Simple Purple Cabbage Slaw

This super easy slaw was inspired by a lack of groceries and a desire for a delicious side dish for the Black Bean Burgers I have on the menu for dinner tonight. This gorgeous slaw is colourful, healthful, and flavourful and the perfect addition to your summer meals.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head of purple cabbage (sliced with thinly with mandolin or sharp knife)
  • juice from 1 medium lemon
  • handful of mint leaves thinly sliced
  • handful of cilantro thinly sliced
  • sea salt to taste (I like pink Himalayan Sea Salt)
  •  3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. In large bowl with lid, add all ingredients.
  2. Shake until honey and olive oil have dispersed among mixture
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few hours for a more tender slaw.

Tip: If you want to make this salad your main dish, just add a cup of black beans for added protein. You can also add corn, carrots, etc. This dish is so versatile, so experiment and enjoy!
