Coconut Mojito Coleslaw [#MMAZ]

Posted Apr 29 2013 12:35am

Coconut. Mojito. Coleslaw.

It really speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

But since this is Heather ‘s Meatless Mondays A-Z Challenge , I guess I can give you a little bit more of a back story.

Y’all know I love cabbage: raw, roasted , fermented

This humble giant Brussels sprout might be inexpensive, but it should never be considered cheap.

Like Jodi Picoult or John Grisham, it is incredibly prolific.

It can be elevated to any number of great heights, certainly, but for once I kept it simple stupid.

Inspired by an old Cooking Light recipe  that Stepmama Smart has made so often --to much acclaim–I consider it to “belong” to her…

although i, of course, had to make it my own...

…as well as an image in a post by my newly betrothed (!) blogger friend Emily

…I reimagined a coleslaw that would be sweet, sour, salty, and just slightly creamy all at once.

With enough hint of coconut (milk) to be refreshingly tropical–

–but not so much that it wouldn’t pair with any number of dishes.

purple sweet potato 'chips' w. a southwestern bean, pepper, summer squash, tomato saute

Five ingredients: no more, no less.

six if you consider lime juice and lime pulp separate ingredients

(And that includes salt.)

This is a beautifully summery slaw even when it is left solely cocktail infused.

But, as good as Mojito Slaw is…

…a smidge of coconut milk truly brings it all together with a definitely unexpected twist.

Shaken* or stirred, this slaw will be in continuous rotation in my kitchen–and at potlucks and cook-outs–all summer.

*You can, actually, shake it. Put all ingredients in a tup-faux-ware container and moji-GO!

Coconut Mojito Slaw

  •  6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup lime juice [and 2 tsp. lime pulp, if desired]
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint, finely chopped (2 Tbsp.)
  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk [or more, for extra creamy]
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Stir well.

Flavor is best after a few hours or the next day.
