Servings 8 servings


  • 1 small head red cabbage sliced thinly
  • 2 large carrots peeled and sliced into thin matchstick shapes
  • 1 head kale I used curly, but the original recipe suggests dino, washed, stemmed and sliced thin
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger peeled and finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste


  • In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, carrots and kale together to combine.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients (oil, lime juice and zest, garlic and salt) in a separate bowl, then pour over the vegetables and toss to coat.


The slaw recipes makes many extra servings; feel free to halve it if you don't want lots of leftovers. But it keeps very well, especially if you don't toss it with the dressing until you're ready to eat it, for several days.
