Colourful Coleslaw

Looking forward to more of this side with warm weather picnics and BBQ’s coming up! I sometimes simplify this recipe omitting the pear, and use pre-shredded cabbage for quicker prep.

Coleslaw recipe:

1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup shredded red cabbage
2 cups shredded and chopped green cabbage
3 heaping tbsp organic mayo or Veganaise
1/4 cup lemon juice or red wine vinegar
1 pear, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
20 grinds of fresh pepper (2-3 Tbsp.)
1 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 cup pistachios (optional)

In a large bowl:
Add celery, cabbage, carrots.
Add vinegar.
Add mayo and maple syrup.
Toss well.
Add garlic powder and pepper.
Fold in pears.
Fold in agave-roasted pistachios (optional)

Allow to chill in fridge for at least twenty minutes before serving.
Serve cold with fresh pepper on top.
Garnish with pistachios.
