Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/4-1/3 head of purple cabbage
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1/2 of a lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon of agave (or alternative liquid sweetener)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons of Olive or Avocado Oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Salad toppings such as tomato, mango, red onion, carrots, radishes, avocado, etc

Instructions
 

  • Begin by making the coleslaw. Thinly cut the cabbage into small strips, and place into a mixing bowl. Grate the carrot and mix some of it in with the cabbage, leaving behind a little for the salad toppings.
  • To make the mayo, place the avocado, lime juice, vinegar, and agave into a blender. Be sure to scrape the sides down in-between mixing. Add the oil, and cilantro and continue mixing. Lastly, add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the dressing (it may be just a little thick) onto the shredded cabbage and carrot mixture and mix until well-combined. Allow to sit in the refrigerator to marinate for at least one hour before making the salad.
  • After the coleslaw has marinated, assemble the salad using the cabbage mixture as the base and topping with your favorite salad ingredients. I did mine with some tomato, mango, red onion, the rest of the grated carrot, cilantro, radishes and fresh lime slices.
