1/3 c homemade Mayo* see details below
2 TBSP lemon juice or juice from 1/2 lemon
1 TBSP dijon mustard
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1/2 TBSP ground pepper
1/2 TBSP dried oregano
1/2 TBSP dried dill
1/2 TBSP dried thyme
1 tsp honey(oops forgot this in the pic!)
ground sea salt to taste

1 24oz bag of coleslaw mix  (I buy the Fresh Express mix of purple cabbage, green cabbage and carrots)

Add all of the Dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk well to combine
Put half of the coleslaw mix into a large mixing bowl
Add the dressing and then the rest of the slaw mix
Mix well with a spoon to make sure you get the dressing evenly distributed
Put into airtight container and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour (not required but recommended to let the cabbage absorb the dressing and let the flavors blend)

This is a quick and refreshing summer recipe with a good crunch. It requires about 5 mins to prep and is easy to make in big batches to take to a BBQ with friends. Great added crunch to salads or on the side with a burger or grilled chicken .. so many options!!

*FOR THE PALEO MAYO: recipe compliments of the one and only Mel Ockerby :)

1 egg
1 c olive oil 
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 TBSP Mustard (you can use any flavor you want here, I love to use dijon)

I use my immersion blender to do this and it takes about 30 seconds-- FABULOUS!
Here is a link to a video that shows how it works! If you don't have an immersion blender -- get one! But in the meantime, here is a link to a video on how you can still do this in your blender.

Add all four ingredients to a jar that tightly fits the immersion blender and place the immersion blender at the bottom and turn on to begin processing. Keep the immersion blender running until all of the oil has been combined and you have a jar of mayo deliciousness. As the video shows, towards the end you will need to slowly bring the immersion blender up to get the last bit of oil to blend. Once you have the mayo created you can add any extra flavor variations to the mayo that you want and mix to combine, I have added a couple ideas below but feel free to get creative based on your preferences and what you have in your cabinets!

Flavor variations:
garlic powder
chili powder
