Zesty Mustard Slaw

June 21_Pic 1

It’s summer, and you know what that means? Cookouts! I am really looking forward to some summer BBQs this year. They’re a great excuse to hang out with good friends and enjoy casual food that doesn’t take hours of preparation. I’m in the midst of planning an event for the 4th of July, so I’ve been thinking a lot about good recipes for a crowd.

Today’s post is my twist on a classic cookout staple: coleslaw. This recipe is for anyone that prefers their slaw mayo-free or with a bit more bite. As with most of my recipes, it uses only a handful of ingredients and requires very little time in the kitchen. I’d rather spend my time drinking a great “porch” wine with friends than spending all night over a stove. Oh….and red cabbage is a nutritional powerhouse. Tasty AND healthy? Yes, please!

Ingredients:

*5-6 cups shredded red cabbage

*1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

*2 tbsp nutritional yeast (I know, I know…it’s the world’s grossest sounding food, but trust me on this one)

*3 tsp liquid amino acids (you could probably substitute soy sauce if that’s what you’ve got in the house)

*4 tbsp rustic dijon mustard

*1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix the vinegar and spices together and toss the red cabbage in the mixture. That’s it. It’s an easy and healthy addition to your cookout menu.
