Recipe: Napa Cabbage and Carrot Slaw (GF)

Leave a comment

I love a light coleslaw alongside grilled meats and fish in the summertime, and I especially love side dishes that can be prepared in advance and eaten cold. This Napa Cabbage and Carrot Slaw is just such a dish and, much like my version of potato salad, this slaw isn’t loaded with mayonnaise but, rather, dressed in a light vinaigrette.

I prefer to use Napa cabbage, as it’s a bit more delicate than regular cabbage (and the leaves are a bit frilly, which looks so pretty!) A few grated carrots lend just the right amount of sweetness to the dish and the lime juice and fresh cilantro in the dressing give the dish a bright pop of flavor.

It takes just a few minutes to prepare and will last in the fridge for several days (although it’s best eaten within a day or two, so that the veggies maintain their crispness).

It’s so simple and truly a treat. I hope that you enjoy it!

Buon Appetit!
