This fresh, colorful slaw is a great alternative to a run-of-the-mill salad. Toss all the ingredients together and dress with the lime Dijon below.
1/3 package shredded coleslaw mix with red and green cabbage and carrots
3 tablespoons finely chopped red onions
½ yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
½ large apple, finely chopped
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Zesty Lime-Dijon Dressing
3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of ½ lime
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
½ clove of garlic, minced
Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste
Whisk ingredients together in a small bowl. Add more EVOO or lime juice to your taste. This dressing is also great on a chopped salad.
This recipe for Grilled Romaine with Spicy Caesar Dressing comes from the Food Network. I wasn’t sure if this would be great or a disaster. It turned out really well and we had seconds – I was more tempted to keep eating this than the Grilled Pizza!
I made several changes to the dressing recipe:
-Substituted two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar for the red wine vinegar
-Added the juice of half a medium lime (the dressing needed more tanginess and something to thin it out a little)
-Used four dashes of hot sauce instead of two
-Used 1/3 of a chipotle pepper in adobo (a little goes a long way)-
-Used pita chips as croutons
