Try something different for your 4th of July BBQ – this is a light and refreshing cabbage slaw with Middle Eastern flavors of lemon, mint and pistachios. It’s great with grilled fish, chicken or kebabs.
- 14 oz. bag of coleslaw mix or 5-6 cups finely shredded green cabbage
- 1.5 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
- 1/3 cup unsalted toasted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tsp. dried mint
- 1/2 tsp. ground sumac
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 4 T olive oil
- pinch of sugar
Smash garlic clove with the back of a knife to bruise and combine with other dressing ingredients. Let dressing sit for a bit, remove garlic clove, and mix with shredded cabbage. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour to an hour. Add in fresh mint and toasted pistachios. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
