Jamaican Cabbage Slaw

If a cookout doesn't have at least one kind of coleslaw, it's not a proper cookout. You don't have to wait for a backyard barbecue to serve this delicious side dish, though. Slaw is a perfect accompaniment to any weeknight dinner, and this Jamaican Cabbage Slaw is even better because it takes so little total time to make and it stays crunchy stored in your refrigerator for up to a week, meaning you can make it way ahead of time.

The dressing for this Caribbean coleslaw recipe is just olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, honey, ground mustard, white pepper, black pepper, and salt. It's sweet and tangy and provides a tasty kick. To prepare the slaw, slice the green cabbage into thin strips and shred the carrot on a cheese grater. To make it even easier, you can use pre-shredded cabbage and carrots from the grocery store. Slice green onions and jalapeño pepper, then toss everything in a large bowl. Add the dressing and mix it all together.

Let the Jamaican Cabbage Slaw sit for at least 15 minutes, or refrigerate if you're not serving it until later.
