Lisa’s Chunky Coleslaw

  • Half a head of cabbage chopped into fine ribbons20140121_205429
  • 3 oz of baby carrots sliced into rounds
  • ¼ cup of Macadamia nuts roughly chopped
  • Olive oil mayonnaise
  • Rice vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Salt and pepper

Place all the veggies and nuts into a large bowl. In a smaller bowl mix 3 Tbsp mayo, 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar,  2 -3 tablespoons of sugar (honestly some people like coleslaw sweet, some not so much. It is up to you), salt, and pepper to taste. Pour over the veggies mixture and toss to coat. Chill for at least 2 hours.

The great thing about coleslaw is you can add whatever you like. Some people like onions, shallots, or green onions. You can try other nuts or mix your cabbages. I think one with nappa and purple cabbages would be beautiful on white plates. The cabbage in the picture is green and I think the light celadon color looks beautiful with the bright orange of the baby carrots. Remember you have to not only enjoy your food, you have to feed the eyes.
