Rainbow Tahini Coleslaw Recipe
Why I Love This Recipe
FEATURING: cabbage, carrots, cucumber, onion, parsley or cilantro (optional), and garlic or garlic scape.
A colourful and fresh recipe that's a lot easier to make than it looks and that can be adapted based on what you have at hand. Parsley is optional and I often leave it out. Also, I like it a lot more with scallions/green onions than regular onions, especially if serving it to kids.
Note: Tahini needs to be well mixes. If too dry, add a little oil and mix well.
Ingredients You'll Need
3 cups shredded or grated cabbage (approx. 1/2 cabbage)
