I made beet coleslaw. No, really! And we liked it! Really!
I know, I know, raw beets in a coleslaw – it didn’t sound entirely, uh, well, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not, but I wanted to try something different with my beets, and I love to the point of crave raw veggies, so I figured it was worth the gamble. I wasn’t so sure that Fahim would like it, though.
Turns out he did. Shocker.
- 3/4 cup beets, shredded
- 3/4 cup carrots, shredded
- 1/2 cup onions, minced
- 1 green chilli, minced
- 1/2 cup coconut, freshly shredded
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon sugar
Mix to combine.
Nothing complicated. If I’d had cabbage, I could have added that. Really, I could have added a lot of things. 🙂
The freshly shredded coconut, it could be argued, could bring this into the realm of a sambol, but hey, that’s just semantics. 😉
The end result was something a lot redder than should ever be found in nature, and we’ll both voluntarily eat it again. Even Fahim said so.
And happiness reigns once again in the land. 😀
