How to Make This Recipe

For this recipe, I used a sharp chef’s knife to chop the red and green cabbage into chunks small enough to fit into the food processor to shred the carrots and cabbage. The food processor also was needed to make the avocado dressing.

To make a creamy avocado coleslaw you want to use a ripe avocado. Even with ripe avocado, you may need to blend it first to get that real creamy texture. Then blend in the olive oil, lime juice, and garlic until everything is well blended. Put the dressing on the side.

In a large mixing bowl place the red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrots. Then top with the avocado dressing and blend well together.

One tip that will make the avocado coleslaw more flavorful is refrigerating it overnight. So if you have time be sure to keep it in the fridge for as long as you can to marinate the flavor.
