I call it… KALE SLAW.

i call it kale-slaw

You know how it is when your kids can’t eat cabbage or mayonnaise and so your life is ruined because that is like the basis of cole slaw? No? Just me?

In any case you might enjoy this alternative. It’s quick, delicious, and good for you.

I hate it when people groan when they hear something is healthy. I’m not talking about your mom’s fat-free, sugar-free, flavor-free cardboard crap. This has sugar, fat, AND flavor. It’s win-win-win. But it’s also got nutrition. Which, I guess, makes it four wins. Win-win-win-win.

Kale Slaw

1 Tbs tahini
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (could sub lemon juice)
1 tsp sugar (or rapadura, honey, whatever)
1 Tbs water (or however much you need for the consistency you want)
salt & paprika to taste

My favorite method is to mix all this in a tupperware-type thingie and then throw the kale (3-4 cups chopped into bite-size pieces) on top, seal the lid tightly and shake the hell out of it. I then put the tupperware directly on the table because I’m classy like that. (Who am I kidding? I’m not even that classy. My table is too small for food presentation.)

I have always served this right away because I am impatient. I would think it would lat a few hours at least, but maybe not overnight or for days the way cabbage cole slaw lasts.

If you try this recipe let me know what you think!
