Second recipe: Pasilla Chile + Lime Cabbage Slaw By: Sprouted Kitchen
On a table full of grilled items, potato salads and cakes, I find that the green vegetables are always a needed addition. This slaw is lighter than a traditional one due to the dressing, while still giving lots of crunch and flavor. A happy day of food + friends to you all!
zest and juice of two large limes
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. pasilla chile powder (chipotle or ancho chile work as well)
1/4 cup olive or grapeseed oil
2 Tbsp. greek yogurt or mayonaise (see note)
1 head green cabbage
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1 bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
3/4 cup toasted macadamia nuts
Heat your waffle iron or your pan.
In a small bowl, combine the zest and juice of the limes. Add the honey, salt and chile powder and whisk to combine. Mix in the yogurt or mayo and the oil and whisk well. Taste and alter as preferred. Set aside in the fridge.
Chop the cabbage super thin, using a mandoline if you have one. In a large salad bowl, combine the cabbage, red onion, three quarters of the cilantro, reserving some for garnish and mango. (Everything can be done in advance up to this point and kept covered in the fridge until ready for serving). Add desired amount of dressing and toss to coat. Chop the toasted macadamia nuts and garnish the top with the remaining cilantro and mac nuts. Give it a grind of fresh pepper and serve. * I feel like slaw benefits from a good 10-15 minute rest in the dressing if you have the time.
