Coconut Cream Coleslaw

For a very quick delicious coleslaw, only five ingredients are required:

2 cups green cabbage sliced thin
1 cup red cabbage sliced thin 
1/4 cup carrots cut in thin pieces
1/4 cup canned coconut milk, whipped until light and fluffy
1 or 2 tsp maple syrup 

Mix the veggies together in a bowl. Whisk the coconut milk and maple syrup together and stir into the veggies. Add more maple syrup as needed to your specific taste.  Serve immediately. 

This is a very flexible recipe. Basically, two parts green and one part red cabbage with a little carrot thrown in. As for the dressing: if it's a fresher can of coconut milk, just whisking until smooth is sufficient, adding a little maple syrup to your liking, and adding as much as suits you to the veggies. 

Another simple but equally pleasing dressing is a two to one ratio of 100% orange juice to maple syrup, mixed liberally into the veggies. 

Another option: serve the veggies in one bowl, the dressing in another for each person to mix in the amounts they prefer. Separately store any left over veggies and dressing in the fridge (with as little extra space in containers as possible to keep fresher longer, as with any leftovers). The veggies will stay crisp for 2-3 days, all ready for your next bowl of coleslaw.  

May you enjoy these, as well as the other simple joys and blessings that come your way each day!
