Fresh Taste Friday ---Recipe #3--- It's A Party Slaw

This past Sunday, our family had what seemed like a pre-Thanksgiving gathering. :-) My uncle was in town and it stands to reason when I good amount of you're kin folk are in town, you gotta eat! But what about Racquel and I? Well, my mother prepared some cabbage and I got the bright idea to make a fresh slaw. Most everyone had some and enjoyed it )along with everything else they ate. Which goes to show you that raw food transcends the palettes and my uncle will eat just about anything once. However, he really liked this recipe as did the rest of the clan and here it is. Give it a try!

I call it It's A Party Slaw because it looks like confetti or streamers in a bowl. Here's how you make it. Put the mayonnaise away :-)

1/2 head of green cabbage
1/2 half head of red cabbage
4 carrots

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1.5 tsp ground mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tablespoon agave nectar
Salt and pepper to taste

Take a vegetable peeler and peel the carrots. Discard the outter skin and continue to peel for a ribbon effect. Keep going until the carrot is pencil thin and you have a nice orange pile of ribbons. Cut your two types of cabbage in ribbon strips as well. A knife works just fine to achieve the same effect as the carrots.  In a separate bowl wisk together the vinegar, oil, and spices and then our it over your veggies. Toss and serve. You may find chilling it for a bit will cause the dressing to marry with the veggies and gives you a refreshing cold salad to go along side pretty much anything!

Enjoy and RAWk On!!!!
