shredded cabbage

Three cheers for BBQ season! This slaw was adapted from a recipe in Quick Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson and is the perfect accompaniment to whatever you’ve got on the grill. The addition of red beans and corn make it both pretty and tasty. Omit the chipotle if you are sensitive to spicy foods.

Spicy Red Bean Slaw

For the salad:

1 ½ cups frozen corn, defrosted

Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Put the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Toss dressing with salad. Enjoy!
