Spicy Cabbage Radish Slaw

spicy cabbage radish slaw

This is a super healthy dish that makes an excellent meal in itself by adding your favorite bean (ie. garbanzo, adzuki, kidney). Today I’ve made it as a simple side dish to accompany whatever else comes along later in the evening for dinner. I’ve never been enamored by radishes, but in this recipe the mild radish taste is enhanced by the herbs and spiciness of the jalapeno. I hope you will try this at home!

You will need:

  1. 1/8 cup jalapeno pepper, diced
  2. 1/8 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
  3. 1 tsp. honey
  4. 1 tbsp. olive oil

These are the ingredients for the dressing which you can place in a blender and mix for 30 seconds or so. Let the dressing sit while you prepare the slaw.

In a bowl, combine:

  1. 2 cups cabbage, chopped
  2. 1 cup carrots, sliced, diced, shredded…whatever you prefer
  3. 1/8 cup fresh basil, chopped
  4. 1/8 cup fresh cilantro
  5. 1 cup radish, chopped

Combine the dressing to the slaw, add a dash of salt and pepper and there you have it! Simple, tasty and healthy!

    The slaw looks beautiful and sounds great. BTW, what I wouldn’t give for that background. Gorgeous. 😉

    This slaw looks like a wonderful summer dish. It’s actually getting warm here, might give it a try this weekend. Do you do anything with the fallen coconuts there?

      Hi Chris,
      You certainly should and let me know what you think!
      The coconuts are just now beginning to fall. I don’t know what type of tool we need to crack it open, but I plan to find out!
