Collard Greens Slaw with Apple Cider Vinegar Vinaigrette, a delicious tangle of fresh, raw vegetables.

A great healthy, no cook meal. This collard green salad is a great meatless, no cook meal as well as a great side dish.  It travels well so it’s great for picnics. I love to serve it alongside fried chicken… I believe it soaks up all the fat and the guilt but I can’t guarantee that.

Raw Collard Green Slaw, serves 8-10 people

1 bunch collard greens, thoroughly washed

1 head Napa cabbage

12 ounces snow peas

1 red bell pepper

6 scallions

Apple Cider Vinegar Vinaigrette

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1-2 tablespoons honey

½ teaspoon powdered ginger (optional)

¾ – 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

Finely slice all the vegetables into thin ribbons and set aside in a large bowl.

In another bowl add apple cider vinegar, pepper, salt, honey and ginger (if you’re using ginger). Mix thoroughly with a whisk to dissolve the spices. While whisking, drizzle in olive oil.  This can also be done in a blender.

Toss with the vinaigrette. Let marinate refrigerated for 6 hours for best results.  Stir occasionally to coat the salad with the vinaigrette.  You can eat it right away it you like but if you let it sit for a few hours the collards will wilt a bit and be a little more tender.

Collard Greens Slaw is a fantastic recipe for a picnic, potluck or non-traditional New Year’s celebration.
