Green is always an inspiring color for me. In the past, it has normally been attached to spring and it was Kelly green or nothing. But now we have so many varieties of green ... lime, avocado, celery, green apple ... greens are happy, serious, silly ... green compliments most other colors as well ... yellow, blue, pink, purple, brown ... I love my grey couch with green pillows they make all the difference. And who doesn't love Kermit the frog!
Enjoy this all green fresh spin on coleslaw!
a hint of mint coleslaw recipe by ann
green cabbage sliced thin (I like to keep this an all "green" & white slaw)
fresh mint - sliced
fresh basil - sliced
I believe that these herbs should be used to taste - but just in case I use around 8 -10 leaves of mint and basil and a handful of cilantro
3/4 cups mayonnaise
black pepper & salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
dash of cayenne
juice of 2 limes
Slice your cabbage and cut your onion, mint, basil and cilantro. Mix your dressing and toss with the cabbage. Add the herbs and onion and toss again. I love this fresh, yummy and beautiful green slaw. It is wonderful with spicy BBQ or fish tacos.
