Coleslaw is a veggie dish that many clients tell me they like to eat if it is available, so I encourage them to do so. Many are surprised to learn that coleslaw is an easy and healthy salad option that makes eating almost raw veggies taste good. Here is a super simple recipe to try that has a touch of sweetness from maple syrup:
1 bag of precut coleslaw
1 green onion, chopped
1 cup sugar snap peas, sliced crosswise
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro and/or mint
1/2 mango, sliced into thin strips (optional)
juice of 1/2-1 lime
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
1 tablespoon sesame oil
dash of hot sauce (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk or stir together lime juice, maple syrup, soy sauce/tamari, sesame oil. Mix in coleslaw, green onion, sugar snap peas, cilantro and/or mint. Stir in mango if using. Serve cold or at room temperature.
This coleslaw keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days.
