Light Coleslaw w/ Radish & Scallions

I made this coleslaw this weekend… so light… so crunchy and delicious. I didn’t create it, I stole it from the Pioneer Woman… she’s kind of amazing… I did add a couple of my own touches. Either way it’s super easy and a great light side for any summer meal. Give it a try!

Here’s what you need as far as fresh ingredients… coleslaw mix or finely shredded cabbage, thinly sliced radishes, thinly sliced scallions, chopped cilantro, fresh squeezed lime juice. You’ll also need olive oil, salt & pepper and anything else you might want to throw in. I added sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.

Mix all but the lime juice and olive oil in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over and season with salt and pepper. Taste… if more oil is needed add in small amounts and recheck.

Next comes the lime juice… Add in and check for flavor… add more if needed. Sorry for the blur 😉

I couldn’t resist adding in some sesame seeds and a handful of sunflower seeds. Just seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

    I might try this even though I might have a little more work with it since here in Germany they don’t sell cabbage that is already cut. Thanks for the idea. 😉
