Beet & Cabbage Slaw

IMG_9585

Looks like we won’t be eating at the table this week for dinner! The mood has hit and I’m thinking pink. Nothing better than beets for staining your plate fuchsia.  Slaw partners happily with so many things:  roast chicken, a juicy steak, seared tempeh, braised pork, sausages, burgers – any variety, fish, sandwiches, etc. Really, it’s hard to go wrong here.

Beet & Cabbage Slaw Print Author: Shannon's Kitchen Serves: 4-6 Ingredients

  • 2 medium raw beets, peeled and grated
  • ½ green cabbage, grated
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • salt - start with a teaspoon
  • freshly ground pepper to taste - I prefer my slaw peppery
  • ¼ cup of your favorite mayo or substitute ¼ cup olive oil for a mayo-less slaw
Instructions
  1. Toss together the grated beets and cabbage in a large bowl.
