Summer is just around the corner. It's time to get inspired by some crisp, raw salads for your upcoming alfresco dining. Here's a fresh twist I created on your old fashioned coleslaw, made by adding a sliced apple and a zesty chia seed dressing. It's totally delish and a perfect accompaniment to your summer dining.
1 cup red cabbage, thinly shredded
1 cup green cabbage, thinly shredded
2-3 kale leaves, stalks removed, thinly shredded
1 carrot, thinly cut
1 apple, thinly cut
A handful of coriander, thinly shredded
Combine in all the ingredients bowl.
Set to one side and make the dressing below.
Zesty Chia Seed Dressing
1 clove of garlic
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
A pinch of pink Himalayan salt
2 teaspoons black chia seeds
Whizz first 6 ingredients together until well combined.
Stir in chia seeds and set aside to thicken.
Lightly coat the apple slaw with the dressing*.
Sprinkle the top with a few extra chia seeds and serve.
*There will plenty of Zesty Chia Seed Dressing left over. Store in the fridge to enjoy later in the week.
