Finding a vegan, gluten-free, macrobiotic vegetable side dish, that is not a kale salad, is one of the most difficult things. Every recipe includes potatoes, corn, tomatoes, or dairy (aka: it’s covered in cheese). Something that immediately came to my mind was cole slaw. But most cole slaw recipes call for a dairy heavy dressing. So, when my mom text me a picture of this recipe from a magazine in a doctors office waiting room, I was so happy!
This recipe has a light, flavorful dressing made with soy sauce, honey, and fresh lime juice. This slaw so colorful and full of great veggies! And it can easily be doubled and would make a great dish for a party. It’s super inexpensive and simple to make, no fancy kitchen tools needed! You can even use just one color of cabbage to make it easier.
Cabbage Slaw with Soy Lime Dressing
1/2 red cabbage, shredded
1/2 green cabbage, shredded
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

Salt and pepper
