Remember when your doctor told you to make sure your plate has all of the colors in the rainbow?
Eating the rainbow is easy with this fresh and light slaw. Here at Tablespoon, we love anything rainbow! And how could anyone resist a slaw this beautiful?
This Rainbow Slaw is perfect for a summer get together because it is made with a honey lime dressing, tons of fresh and colorful vegetables, and not even a smidge of mayo. It will last longer outdoors, and it just gets better and better as it sits. It is light, crisp, and beyond tasty.
Want to see how to make this rainbow slaw? Awesome. Let’s go.
I start by making my dressing. Combine honey, lime juice, vinegar, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to dissolve the honey.
Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, while whisking. Take a taste to make sure that your seasonings are right. You might need a little more salt and pepper. Or honey even. It truly depends on your taste. Set the dressing aside.
Chop, then combine the vegetables in a large bowl (I wait until I have tossed the salad before adding in the cilantro).
Pour the dressing over the slaw and give a good toss.
Add the cilantro and toss until everything is combined. Give a taste and make sure that you’re properly seasoned.
This slaw is great served right away, but I think that it tastes better after an hour or two (or a day) in the fridge. Enjoy!
