Corn & Cabbage Slaw with Honee Lime Dressing

IMG_8468

I love this slaw. It screams SUMMER and RAINBOWS!

Red cabbage.
Orange carrots.
Yellow corn.
Green cilantro.

When you find the first corns on the cob of the season, shuck those babies and make this dish. I like corn raw but you can cook it on the grill or boil it. No matter how you slice it (ha!) you will end up with a crunchy, flavorful, oil free pile of goodness.

Note: some people hate cilantro. I totally get it. One way to mitigate the cilantro-ness is to add chopped scallions or red onions. Also marinating the slaw for an extra 30 minutes mellows it out. But if that is just too much to bear, use parsley instead.

Best served day of.

Makes enough for 2 to 3 plates

2 ears of corn
1/4 of a head of purple cabbage
2 carrots
1/2 red pepper
Cilantro, a few sprigs

Cut the kernels of corn from the cob. Shred the cabbage. Grate the carrots on a box grater or in the food processor using the shred blade. Dice the pepper and mince the cilantro.

Toss together.

Honee Lime Dressing
2 limes
1 heaping tablespoons stoneground mustard
1 tablespoon Bee Free Honee
Salt, a pinch

Whisk together the dressing ingredients.

Pour the dressing over the slaw and toss to coat. Marinate for an hour or so. Enjoy!
