Amongst the hot temperatures and grilled goodies of summer, a cool, fresh, crunchy slaw is nothing short of superb! Containing any combination of assorted veggies and ingredients covered in a creamy dressing, these no-cook dishes make the perfect accompaniment to any meal!
Looking for a super delicious slaw that is also super good-for-you? Made with broccoli, kale, sliced almonds and a homemade mayo, this is one slaw that is as nutritious as it is delicious! Packing a mega-amount of vitamins C, A, K and B, plus fiber and iron from the kale and broccoli, almonds add to its awesome “crunch” factor as well as add a bit of healthy fats and protein to the mix. This salad makes a tasty side to any barbecued goodies, a filling snack on its own and downright delicious addition to any burger or sandwich!
We’ve touched a lot on the many benefits of eating the rainbow, and thanks to this recipe you can catch them all! Not only are all the fresh and crunchy ingredients in this recipe entirely up-to-you, but they are covered in dressing made with a combination of the tastiest Asian sauces. Made with rice vinegar, sesame oil, peanut butter, tamari sauce, brown sugar and – of course – ginger, you are in for a flavor-sensation that is as authentic as you can make at home! One aspect that sets this slaw apart is its call for dried chow mein noodles that add a hearty crunch to the already crisp veggies!
Looking to turn up the heat in that slaw of yours? This enticing recipe uses chipotle pepper and bacon for a spicy and smoky slaw unlike the rest! As if that isn’t cool enough, it also utilizes zucchini and yellow squash noodles for added crunch and color! Tossed in a simple mayo dressing made with chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, vinegar, garlic and cumin, it almost doesn’t need the bacon bits! [almost!]
This is what happens when slaw gets serious! Smokey, creamy and loaded with a variety of tastes and textures, it’s practically a meal of its own! Beginning with a base of julienned red cabbage, bell pepper, fresh cilantro and feta cheese, corn and jalapeño are sautéed lightly until charred for a deep, smoky flavor. Made with mayo, sour cream, lime juice, cumin, smoked paprika and chili powder, this slaw is a must-try on tacos or alongside carne asada!
Perhaps the coolest part of this slaw is its combination of sweet and spicy ingredients. Sweet apple and crisp celery root create a beautiful contrast between spicy jalapeños and pickled onion for an adventure of taste and texture! Requiring just a quick homemade pickling of the red onion, have this recipe ready in just 30 minutes to pair with pork or other savory meats! Not familiar with celery root? Fear not! After you peel off the hard outer layer you are left with a soft, fibrous center that tastes like a cross between celery and cilantro.
A recipe that cuts-no-corners when it comes to flavor, this is not your average slaw! Made with a base of shredded brussels sprouts, this slaw features a maple dijon cider vinegar vinaigrette, toasted pecans and smoky coconut (or real) bacon that make it excellent for the autumn months ahead. Ready in no time, this slaw is perfect for impressing your friends and family at dinner or being the most original recipe at a potluck!
Described as “Tropical Nirvana”, this awesome slaw not only has the classic cabbage and carrots, but sweet pineapple, sharp ginger and earthy cilantro! Covered in a light and bright ginger-soy-lime vinaigrette, there is no better way to add some excitement to dinner time! Serve it alongside Hawaiian chicken, shrimp tacos or tangy ribs!
