Hello my friends… hope you like all things purple & red because this happened and it’s amazing!! Red Cabbage Beet Slaw ~ this ‘slaw’ recipe (I literally realized how much I hate this word!) Ugh! It’s a cooked slaw recipe which means you serve it still hot or warm and it’s AMAZING!! Pretty much the best side dish I’ve ever had! And I’m sure you’ll agree soon when you make this recipe :)
The ingredients are pretty basic and clean. I have some red cabbage (which should really be called purple cabbage, right?), some cubed beets, red onion and to add a bit of sweetness dried cranberries! Oh MY gosh – these ingredients together are so delicious!!
1/2 red cabbage, grated in the food processor or sliced thin, and steam or cook (do not overcook) (about 10 minutes)
3 medium beets, peeled and cooked fully, (slice in half for cooking faster and evenly on medium low) (about 20 minutes)
1/4 cup red onion, sliced thin
1/4 cup – 1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
salt and pepper to taste
Cook and strain the cabbage and beets. Let cool to warm.
Add onions and cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette and salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine.
Keeps well in the fridge up to 7 days.
Double the recipe easily for a double portion.
Freezing not recommended.
This is probably my NEW favourite side dish recipe. I can’t get enough. I have it with dinner, I have it with a salad and chickpeas and this adds a bit of pizzazz to my random veggies.
What I like about it too is that you make a big batch the night before and then have this great side dish for a few days.
This will also make an appearance on our Christmas Dinner table. Oh I just can’t wait for that to happen.
And can we just discuss the colours here for a bit….? Oh wow! These purples and deep reds are so GORGEOUS!! This is also another reason why this dish is wonderful to bring to a potluck or dinner party and everyone can enjoy it.
It’s completely allergen-friendly and everyone can eat it. It’s gluten-free, vegan, paleo, nut free etc. etc. :) Enjoy!!
