|Cabbage & Beet Slaw with Ginger Vinaigrette
1 small head red cabbage
1 medium-sized beet
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 tablespoons oil (vegetable or canola)
1 1/2 tablespoon honey
1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
Salt & pepper to taste
Chop the cabbage into 4 wedges. Trip away any any of the tougher core. Cut the remaining cabbage into thin strips. Place in a bowl.
Peel the beet using a vegetable peeler. Using a hand-held grater or box grater, shred the beet into the bowl with the cabbage, being careful to not stain clothes with beet juice.
Make the vinaigrette. Combine vinegar, honey, and ginger in a small bowl. Add oil and whisk to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Toss vinaigrette with cabbage-beet mixture. Allow the slaw to stand 20-30 minutes before serving, tossing regularly. Add salt and pepper if needed, and serve. -TheBittenWord.com
