Ever just craved a crunchy slaw? None of those green bits, just the good parts? Alright, I’ll admit, the sauce is actually what makes this slaw delicious.

While I used a pre-made dressing as a base, I did customize it to my specifications. And using some store bought dressing may be considered cheating by some – it’s not by me, since it speeds up the preparation process sufficiently. Lets get our slaw on.

Cabbage is actually pretty crazy to cut and totally distracting if you’re into just staring at your food as I am. Chop up your cabbage and radicchio and toss into a bowl with the onions, carrots, and lemon and orange juice.

Then add your dressing and gently toss to combine.

Then serve your slaw with an eggplant steak and a side of purple mashed potatoes!
