You can find the recipe for the HeartyLentil Shepherds Pie here:
A simple easy coleslaw recipe with a twist! The fresh fruit adds a nice sweetness in contrast with the vinegar-based dressing. Each bite is a full-on flavor explosion! I like recipes that are just a little bit different and unique. I am not trying to recreate the old-style coleslaw here – there are plenty of those recipes around. This one is deliciously different – that alone makes it special. I make this slaw throughout the year changing up the fruit depending on what’s in season.
SERVINGS – 8
• 16 ounces coleslaw mix – sometimes they come as a 14-ounce bag -that is fine too, you can make your own slaw as well
• 1 cup shredded carrots
• 2-3 Celery stalks diced
• 2 apples cored, diced
• 1-2 cups pineapple chunks, or grapes cut in half, or mango
• Celery seed – optional – to taste
• 4 Mandarin oranges
Creamy White Balsamic Dressing
• 1 box or can cannellini Beans, rinsed and drained
• ½ cup white balsamic vinegar
• 2-4 Medjool Dates or your favorite type of date, could sub 1/4 cup soft raisins
• 4 teaspoons no salt added mustard
• 1 cup unsweetened plant milk
• 2-3 teaspoons Garlic & Herb no salt seasoning or 2 cloves of garlic
1. Place all the Slaw mixture ingredients except the celery seed, in a large bowl and mix.
2. Place all the dressing ingredients in the blender container. Blend until smooth and creamy.
3. If you don’t have a high-powered blender or if your dates are very hard, try soaking the dates before blending. Simply put the dates in a small bowl and pour boiling water over them – soak for 30 minutes, drain off the water and continue with the recipe.
4. If serving the coleslaw for multiple people go ahead and pour the dressing on the coleslaw – use as much or as little as you like. Stir until the slaw is well covered. Sprinkle with the celery seed if desired.
5. If you want to enjoy the slaw over a few days only dress enough of the slaw for each meal. Store the remainder of the slaw and dressing separately. That will keep it fresh and crisp.
To make this a main dish add rinsed and drained garbanzo beans. It makes a delightful lunch or dinner with a sweet potato on the side.
