This recipe is quick, easy and delicious - all the things we healthy busy people love in our life! What's also great about this recipe is that it's so versatile. You can use your coleslaw as a side dish, mix it into a salad for a whole new experience, or use it as a topping or filling for a "meatier" recipe such as a veggie nut burger or the raw potato salad. This recipe has fast become one of my favourites and I'm hoping it becomes one of yours too!
For the slaw:
4 large carrots
1 small onion
1 small cabbage
For the mayo:
1 cup water
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup pine nuts
1 1/2 cups cashew nuts
1/2 tsp Himalayan crystal salt
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs lemon juice
- Chop the carrots, cabbage and onion into fairly small pieces and place in a food processor.
- "Pulse" until your ingredients are well combined and appear the perfect slaw shape and size. Pour them into a large bowl ready for mixing.
- Rinse your food processor then add the mayo ingredients. Be sure to mix very well adding more water if needed or desired. (It all depends how thick and creamy you like your mayo. NB: This mayo thickens VERY well in the fridge so make it a little runnier than you think for the perfect creaminess for you.)
- When fully blended, pour three-quarters of the mayo on top of the slaw and mix with a large spoon (or hands!), see how well your mixture is coated. If it's fine, you're done. If you need more coverage, add more mayo.
Raw Coach Top Tips:
- Any left-over mayo can be used as a dip or sauce for other dishes during the week.
- Fridge life of mayo is 5-7 days; the final coleslaw mixture with mayo will be good for 3 or 4 days in the fridge.
