Lemon Tahini Cabbage Slaw

  1 rater(s)

Allow us to introduce you to a game-changing slaw recipe: the lemon tahini cabbage slaw. Unlike traditional coleslaw recipes, this slaw is not smothered in a mayonnaise-rich dressing. Instead, a luxurious, creamy tahini dressing that has lovely zest from the lemon coats the cabbage, carrots, and green onions. Although we encourage you to cut up the cabbage and carrots yourself, you can use a bag of coleslaw mix. Just make sure that it doesn’t contain candied nuts or sugary dried fruit, and that you don’t use dressing if it comes with a packet.

This creamy, tangy, and crunchy slaw is loaded with nutrients that’ll make you feel like a health superstar. Both cabbage and lemon are excellent sources of vitamin C and antioxidants. Cabbage also provides vitamin K and fiber, which is prebiotic fiber that encourages the growth of healthy gut bacteria. Tahini also works to feed the good bacteria in the gut to help it run smoothly. Additionally, tahini is a great source of healthy fats, protein, and calcium. 

It’s nice to have a recipe in your arsenal that you can make in a pinch. You know that the flavors will hit and impress your taste buds every time because let’s be real: nobody wants to eat poor-tasting salad. And if you truly enjoy a classically creamy slaw, this recipe meets you halfway. The tahini provides a lovely creaminess to the dressing, which exhibits bright notes that complement the slaw ingredients. This truly has a depth of flavor that you don’t normally get from a slaw!
