Simple Zesty Cabbage Slaw


I’m going through a cabbage phase, and this amazing slaw is certainly fueling the obsession!

Simple Zesty Cabbage Slaw

I’m a HUGE fan of Uproot Kitchen recipes.  If you’re not following Marisa’s site, you totally should!  She creates the most beautifully flavorful, colorful, healthy dishes, and this one is no exception!

I’ll have you know that this is my second batch of this slaw.   I’ve added it to a burger, stuffed it inside of a burrito, added it to tacos, and eaten it right out of a bowl.  So many options!

I’m definitely hooked and you will be too!  I made a few modifications to the recipe from Marisa’s original.  Know that the addition of cumin was initially a mistake, but I really like the flavor it adds!  Enjoy!
