I made this coleslaw for our little July 4 barbecue. It is based on a recipe from the Joy of Cooking. Of course that one has a lot of unhealthy ingredients like sugar, white vinegar, and mayonnaise, so mine is slightly different. It’s a new twist on everyone’s old favorite. And yes, you have permission to make it with green cabbage instead of purple. 


Combine the grated cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, add the grapeseed oil, apple cider vineger, and agave nectar. Toss well with the cabbage and carrots. Season with salt and toss again before serving.
