Mediterranean Coleslaw

While we often make a lot of meat-centric dishes, we are also a big fan of vegetarian recipes—and coleslaw recipes are one of our favorites. We have one already, which we based off the Colonel’s famous recipe, but we wanted to stray off the path a little for this one.

One of the awesome bonuses of this coleslaw recipe is also that the dressing we came up with will work well as a salad dressing for everyday use. We hope you’ll enjoy this coleslaw recipe and the delicious salad dressing.

While the dressing sits, prepare cabbage. We used a mandolin at a thickness of 1/4″, and then roughly chopped to make fork-friendly pieces. Add to the bowl of cabbage your roasted red pepper, mushrooms, and kalamata olives.
