Red Slaw

Servings: 6 Prep: 10 min Cook: 0 min Total: 10 min

This is an incredibly simple salad, but don’t mistake it for an uninteresting one. It’s fresh, colorful, crunchy and a bit zippy! It makes a perfect companion to any BBQ or social gathering, while also only taking a few minutes to whip up! The salt and acid from the vinegar macerate the vegetables, creating a more unified solid “slaw”, as opposed to a random assortment of vegetables.

With only 4 ingredients, this salad can actually fill many roles. It’s wonderful atop a BBQ Pork Bowl, or served in a Fish Taco. It’s spectacular on its own, or served within a Slider. It can really fit in anywhere standard coleslaw lives, but it’s completely vegetarian. In fact, being that it’s without eggs, it’s completely vegan!

For those seeking a slightly sweeter experience, you can always add a little something sweet to it … to taste. I can also envision throwing some fresh herbs into it, to give it some blasts of color, a richer nutrient blend and maybe even to serve as a complement to another dish. Perhaps some fresh cilantro with your taco? Or, perhaps some fresh thyme and a little cayenne to go with your pork?

As is, this basic salad is quite tasty, but I encourage you to throw a few ingredients into it, to make it your own. Green onions and roasted pumpkin seeds, anyone?

  1. Hi Robin, in the notes I suggest adding one, if you’d like. It’s totally optional. I wanted to leave this one as a very basic recipe, with which one can build their own flavors. Feel free to throw a little sweetener into it! Maybe some toasted mustard seeds, some fresh thyme and a very very thinly sliced apples, perhaps? YUM! 🙂
