  • Ingredients *read the method first
  • 4 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp. red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tomato, finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic sea salt
  • Juice of one lemon

Method: I ran the ingredients, cabbage through cilantro, through my food processor’s shredding blade instead of dicing and chopping. I started with cabbage and ended with cabbage in order to get all the softer vegetables to go through. Sprinkle with garlic sea salt and lemon juice. Stir. Refrigerate for an hour or so. That’s it. You’re done.

1/31/2022: Three weeks ago I was sitting on a beach in Roatan, Honduras soaking in the rays. I rousted myself up to see what was at the lunch buffet and brought a piece of roasted chicken and coleslaw back to the beach on a paper plate with plastic utensils. It turned out to be the best coleslaw I’ve ever eaten and I don’t think it was just because of the sun and sand atmosphere, although that could have something to do with it. I noticed the slaw was not bound with mayonnaise and it had tomato in it. Today I found a recipe on Pinterest called “Mexican Cabbage Salsa” by VeganBlueberry and decided to try a riff on that. Close. Very, very close. I do not have a green cabbage on hand, so used red instead. I’m amazed at how good this tastes. Yum!
