Purple Pick-Me-Up Slaw! GF, V, BED, SCD!


Gosh, I am always so blown away by your compassion and encouraging comments. Thank you for your overwhelming response of support after yesterday’s post. I truly have some wonderful friends on here:)
So today, we spent a beautiful day on the water. The sun was shining, the air was beginning to feel like fall, and we were the only boat on the chain.
Purple Pick-Me-Up Slaw!
We cruised for about 4 hours, and then came in, sun-kissed and wind-blown.
crunchy red peppers!
Sounds like the perfect evening for a crisp, refreshing salad!
a crisp ending to a wonderful day on the water!
Enter: my Purple Pick-Me-Up Slaw! Crunchy veggies in a tangy, ginger-lime dressing. Just fabulous!
so colorful!!
And it’s Gluten Free, Vegan, Body Ecology Diet and Specific Carb Diet Friendly!
Here’s what you need: Serves 4
1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thin on a mandolin
1 cucumber, deseeded, and sliced thin on a mandolin
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion, sliced paper-thin
1 cup sugar snap peas, sliced
2 carrots, chopped
3-4 Tbsp Cilantro
1 avocado, diced
Dressing:
juice of 1 lime
1 Tbsp ginger, grated
10 drops of alcohol free, pure liquid stevia (SCD use 1 tsp honey)
1 tsp EVOO
salt and pepper
Couldn’t be easier: Carefully prep your veggies on a mandolin or with a knife. Place everything in a big bowl and sprinkle with salt. (This begins to release their juices and start a bit of a dressing). Combine the dressing ingredients in a little bowl, and then toss with the salad. Chill before serving. Enjoy!
gluten free, vegan, BED and SCD!
This meal was so good. And it’s an awesome dish because a) it feeds a lot of people, b) it comes together in a snap, and c) it’s super delicious and people love it!
crazy purple cabbage!
It is so beautiful with all the colors. Purple, red, orange, green, lemony yellow – it is truly stunning! People are drawn to it and want to taste it!
buttery avocado!
And when they do – it is just refreshing and delightful! The ginger and lime together, create a bright, “zingy” flavor that is just perfect with the crunchy, cool vegetables. It tastes the way it looks:)
so crunchy and wonderful!
And it’s even better the second day – the flavors have married and it’s the perfect “round two recipe” — stuff it in a pita or wrap, add some grilled protein, or eat it as is!
What’s your favorite easy weeknight dinner?
See ya tomorrow!
Isn't it amazing what mandolines can do? Here's the one I use:
