Ingredients:

  • Pinch of salt

Coarsely chop cabbage.

Combine cabbage, lime juice, and cilantro in food processor. Pulse several times until you reach desired size of cabbage. Salt as desired!


Voila! This simple refreshing slaw is sure to be a healthy hit at your next BBQ or picnic!

Great recipe, but I think I am going to need a bigger food processor! Favorite early summer food? Rhubarb - tried it for the first time in a chutney last year and it was fantastic.

Amen to a good food processor :-) I'm missing having a CSA this year but instead I'm a farmers market groupie and adoring every minute. I need to get down to Copley for the big one!

Summer is a time to be outside, grilling and entertaining with friends and family. One of our favorite healthy food is kebabs. Kebabs are fun and easy to prepare a meal that is healthy and happy always crowd. At the fish use more nutritious choices, my favorite is the halibut or mahi-mahi, which has been marinated for half an hour before grilling.
