cool coconut cabbage slaw [for spicy tacos]

cool coconut cabbage slaw

…or coconut cabbage salad. because I ate a whole bowl of this as a salad.

Today is the beginning of cabbage recipes for Meatless Monday, and I bring you something so easy yet So Delicious.

You could make this an entree salad by adding other veggies (carrots, celery, broccoli) and some protein (beans, spinach, tofu, tempeh).

…or you can fill your tacos with it. When they are super spicy tacos like these, the cool of this slaw balances perfectly.

    I guess I really need to get on the cabbage train, as I’m seeing recipes for it everywhere I look. While I don’t like coconut–it tastes like suntan lotions smells–I’m sure I could find an easy way to figure out how to use it!

    I always despised coleslaw, since I disliked cabbage but I’m thinking that my grown-up taste buds might warrant I give it another go with this recipe. I mean, if there’s coconut involved, how can it not be good? 😉

    I love that we were both channeling the coconut this week for MMAZ. Maybe instead of dancing around the kitchen singing ‘Put the lime in the coconut’ we should sing ‘Put the cabbage in the coconut’?
