Citrus Slaw Salad

I mentioned Monday that I hate the word slaw, but that doesn't mean I don't love eating it. This is the recipe that my mom made for dinner on Friday. It's a Rachel Ray recipe with a few modifications (Hello! Soy sauce! My favorite!). It was so delicious, I had to share it here. We ate it with brown rice with jalapeƱo almonds and barbecued tofu marinated with lime, honey, cilantro, cumin, soy sauce and olive oil (see this chicken marinade for exact measurements). With snow surrounding many of you, I'm hoping this recipe will be the perfect bite of summer to warm you up. 

Servings: 4


1 head of cabbage, chopped/shredded 
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 carrot, grated
4 scallions, chopped (greens and whites)
1/2 cup of cilantro
roasted sesame seeds to taste

2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons of honey (or agave)
3 tablespoons (a couple of glugs) olive oil
1 tablespoon of soy sauce

Combine vegetables in a bowl. In another small bowl, whisk lime juice and honey, and drizzle in oil to combine dressing. Pour dressing over slaw and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Make it! I know you're gonna love it!

p.s. this guide to barbecuing tofu


  1. Sounds good! I love coleslaw and really need to try make this one at home. I made some marinated tofu today, it's good but takes long to get some taste. We have only natural tofu here, i know in Finland there is smoked flavoured etc. Do you have tips how to prepare tofu? Grilling it would be great, we just don't have a garden ha ha :)

  2. There should be a better word for slaw, something pretty, like confetti salad or something, right?

    Happy Wednesday! xo

  3. @Deirdre confetti salad! Yes! Much better :)

  4. This looks incredible!! Can't wait to make this :) PS I found your blog about a week ago and am lovvving it. It's such a refreshing site and your life really seems superb and is portrayed beautifully. Thanks for the beautiful insights :))
