Spicy Slaw

I’m slightly obsessed with coleslaw these days, especially any coleslaw made with purple cabbage which I find to be delectably sweet and crunchy.  I’m always craving a good crunch in my food.

I like to serve this spicy slaw with my Turkey Burgers from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook or my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken.

  1. I made this tonight- substituted about a teaspoon of maple syrup for the stevia- and… the salad was fabulous! I’m making it next weekend for a potluck. I think lots of people will love it. Thank you!

  2. Hi Elana!

    I just want to update you on the gf granola. I made half the recipe because my warming oven is not large enough for 2 trays! It turned out superbly and I was able to take it on the plane in a plastic bag. It lasted 3 days and we were rationing it out because it was so good. We were traveling, and eating at restaurants that were not necessarily gf aware so it was really great! I have been avoiding granola because of cereal grains and this is a huge treat—thanks so much you are amazing!
    I can’t wait to try the cole slaw now that we are home again!


  3. Gee, I’d love some homemade black cherry preserves, or peach, or strawberry, or… you get the picture.
    You should post this over at http://www.glutenfreefeed.com/. I love the idea of an exclusive “Tastespotting” site for GF people. That just proves how very special we all are.

  4. I’m not a fan of coleslaw, but anything with cilantro, garlic and olive oil calls my name. I must try this, just to make sure I’m not coleslaw-phobic, as I have believed all these years. I guess there are just so many ways to make it!

  5. just a suggestion – you may want to offer folks an alternative sweetener – i find stevia ruins any dish it is in for me – the aftertaste stays with me for hours…i have found that xylitol (which is loved by dentists) is a super alternative – i use the birch (rather than corn version) – and find it to be the same texture as sugar – and NO aftertaste! perfect!

    • I completely agree with you. I have tried Stevia more than once only to be sorry I did. I heard that maple syrup is healthy. Not sure how it would be in this salad. I like the xylitol too. It leaves no aftertaste. Is it as healthy, I wonder?

      • this isn’t true for all brands of Stevia. I’ve tried the recommended brand of Stevia (Astraya) from Elana (see link in ingredients) and have been using it ever since. It’s high quality and there’s no aftertaste!
