Spicy Raw Slaw

My “Spicy Raw Slaw” needs to become a staple in everyone’s home! Each bite has a fresh crispness along with the perfect amount of spice. As you know I’m a huge fan of #cookingwithcolor and this slaw is as visually beautiful as it is flavorful!

It can be used on tacos, salads, roasted veggies, in a wrap, or any way you want to! I love how crisp the texture is and the crunch it provides. I don’t eat a raw based diet but love any way to incorporate raw foods into my meals.

I am also always on board to adding a little acidity and spice to my meals. I think both spice and acid enhance almost every dish and can add a quick punch to any bland meals!

Feel free to add or substitute any of the ingredients to better suit your tastes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot – shredded
  • 1 large cucumber – shredded
  • 1 red onion – thinly sliced
  • 1 raw corn on the cob – sliced
  • 1cup of lettuce – shredded
  • 1 small jalapeño – thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro – finely chopped
  • 1 large lime – juiced
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of evoo
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar

Mix together all these ingredients in a bowl and let sit until ready to use! The longer this mix sits the more developed the flavors will be!

Let me know how this recipe works out for you and I’d love if you send me pics of what it looks like!
