Coleslaw (That doesn’t taste like $#!%)

I usually find coleslaw to be disgusting, a mayonnaise-doused sloppy salad that creates an illusion of having something healthy at a bbq restaurant.  No thanks.  This is a very simple mayonnaise-free coleslaw that is great with Caribbean food or bbq.  It has a touch of sweetness, a bit of twang, and you can adjust the level of heat.

2 1/2 Cups Green Cabbage

1 Medium Carrot, shredded

1/2 Medium Onion, sliced thinly

1/4 Cup White Vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)

1/4 Cup Vegetable  Oil

1 Tbsp Agave Nectar

Juice of 1/2 Lime

Sea Salt & Pepper

Cayenne Pepper

Chop the cabbage finely and shred the carrot on a cheese grater (or in a food processor).  Place both into a large bowl and set aside. Slice the onion thinly and chop into small pieces.  Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and soften (~5 min).  Add the vinegar, agave nectar, lime juice, seasonings, and stir for another few minutes.  Pour over the shredded cabbage/carrot combination and mix.  Refrigerate until cool and serve.

Try with Caribbean Pork and Coconut Rice.
