Creamy Cole Slaw

This is my favorite cole slaw! A super simple side dish!
It’s spicy, sweet, crunchy, sour, and salty. Everything I love about food! And it’s great served with Chicken and Apple Sausage on a Gluten Free bun with some avocado and blue corn chips.
This was an entirely gluten free meal. Another Faux Comfort Food meal.

Here is how the Cole Slaw is made!

I have an Aunt Gloria (Everyone should have an Aunt Gloria), and she made a cole slaw once that was just so so so delicious. I have adapted her recipe, mostly because when I asked her how she made it, she didn’t really remember. My cooking heritage is from a group of insanely good Home Cooks who look at measuring as an afterthought. They just use a pinch here, a handful of this and wall-ahhhh! You have some delicious food in front of you. So asking for ingredients is always interesting. Sometimes I wonder if they leave information out of purpose!

Yield: Two 1 cup servings

1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tbsp raw unfiltered honey
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
juice of one lime
1 tsp fresh grated ginger, this is optional
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
pinch of salt

Then Add:
2 heaping cups of shredded tri-color cole slaw
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup toasted chopped peanuts or pecans (I used Honey Roasted Peanuts)

Mix all the dressing ingredients together until smooth:

Then add your tri-color cole slaw mix, cranberries, and nuts.


Mix and Taste. Always taste and adjust salt if necessary.

This is so delicious! I have a hard time not eating the entire bowl.

I have some onion haters in the house. So cole slaw without onion is a must. This is perfect!
