The Really Good Slaw

Makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients for the Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave

  • 1 teaspoon Good on Everything Rub

Ingredients for the Slaw:

  • 1 medium shallot (or half of a small red onion), thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh citrus juice (I love the tang of lemon or lime, but orange works as well)

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4 cups shredded cabbage and/or hearty greens of choice (I love the color and flavor combo of red cabbage and Tuscan kale)

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (if using kale as one of your hearty greens)

  • 2 cups thinly sliced crunchy veggies of choice (such as bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, radishes, Brussels sprouts, green beans, etc.)

  • 1/2 cup minced fresh herbs (try cilantro, parsley, basil, mint, and/or dill)

  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced (optional for those who love a spicy slaw)


Make the Dressing: Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Make the Slaw: Place the shallot (or red onion), citrus juice, and kosher salt in a small bowl and toss to combine. Set aside.

If using kale, place kale in a large mixing bowl, drizzle it with olive oil and massage it for about a minute to help tenderize it. Add cabbage and/or remaining hearty greens, the sliced veggies, the minced herbs, the serrano chile (if using), and the citrus-soaked shallot. Pour the dressing over the top and toss to combine.

Make ahead: This slaw is best enjoyed right away, but it will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. Just note that the crunchy texture will soften over time, and the colors may bleed together depending on what cabbage/veggie combo you choose.
