Finished Cole Slaw

Cole Slaw

We just got back from Jamaica and so I’ve been on a mission to recreate a good jerk chicken.  To go along with it I’ve been making scratch cole slaw which is surprisingly simple to make.

Finished Cole SlawHere is the finished product!

Shredding CabbageStart by discarding the top layer of the cabbage,  Then cut off the bottom.  Cut the cabbage in half and then quarter.  Basically just cut it small enough to fit in the hole of your food processor.  Of course you could also just buy precut cabbage.  But if you do that, you almost might as well just buy premade cole slaw and that’s no fun 🙂

Cabbage in a bowlThrow the shredded cabbage in a large bowl.

Peel CarrotsWash and peel the carrots then throw them in the food processor as well. Carrots are relatively high carb so adjust the amount you use depending on how many carbs you can stand for the day.

Carrots in CabbageMix the carrots into the slaw and add the mayo, yellow mustard, salt and pepper.

Slaw with green onionsChop some green peppers and throw them in as well.

Cole Slaw and Jerk ChickenFor lunch this week I made some jerk chicken and we ate the cole slaw along with it.
