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. This is a delicious cole slaw and so versatile. The first few times I made it almost as written, but this time my cilantro was moldy! So I used fresh dill and always leave out the sweetener as I’m not crazy about it in savory foods. I love the idea of it on tacos, thank you ladies!
    And thank you Elana! Delicious, and the only way I’ll make it from now on.

  2. Hi, Elana,
    I was looking for a red cabbage slaw recipe. You’re yummy slaw fit the bill. Because I did
    not have all the ingredients specified, I made a few mods. I used raw organic apple cider vinegar instead of lime juice, cayenne pepper instead of jalapeños, and cooked organic
    beets instead of stevia. The added ginger was divine. I did not have cilantro and decided to add a tiny amount of oregano instead. I am happy to say the changes worked. This is the first time I’ve made your red cabbage slaw. Next time I will use cilantro, jalapeño and limes.
    I am ever grateful for your inspiration and dedication. JoAnna

  3. Just made this. Looks beautiful and tastes divine. Substituted an apple for the stevia and red pepper flakes for the jalapeno. Can’t wait for dinner and all the wonderful comments.
