1Tbsp  Gustare Persian Lime Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1Tbsp Gustare Honey Ginger Balsamic Vinegar

1 clove garlic, pressed

¾ tsp Cape Cod Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. Peel tough outer layer of broccoli stalks.  Cut into matchsticks approximately 2” in length.  You should yield approximately 2 cups.
  2. Combine broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and red onion in medium bowl.  Set aside.
  3. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic, juice, zest, and seasonings, until well combined.

Note:

Slaw is best eaten on the day it is made.  While it stays crunchy overnight, colors bleed together after extensive marinade time and become less vivid.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve seared tuna on a bed of this citrusy, gingery slaw.  My mouth is watering already!

It is also a delicious accompaniment for grilled swordfish or salmon.

Add a surprising crunch and twist of flavor to a sandwich wrap!

It is refreshing as a cold veggie salad all on its own!
