KALE SLAW WITH CREAMY MUSTARD DRESSING - Non-Diary
-Non-Dairy and GF, but your would never know! -
This mustard dressing is undeniably delicious—the cashew butter makes it rich and creamy, while the vinegars and whole-grain mustard add just the right amount of bright, tangy ﬂavor. I often make extra and serve it as a dip for fresh, crunchy vegetables. If you’re used to a dairy-based dressing on your slaw, then you’ll enjoy this as a change. Noone will know this is dairy free – it tastes like there is mayo in it!
Note: You should have most of these ingredients. If you are new to Ume Plum Vinegar, you should know that this is extremely alkalinizing for your body. It also provides a umami flavor. Use sparingly instead of salt. It is salty! Are you an Olive oil and vinegar salad type of person? Use Ume Plum Vinegar instead. SERVES 4 TO 6 (Feel free to double the recipe to have on hand as a side dish) Ingredients:
DRESSING: I recommend mixing the dressing in a Nutribullet.
2 tablespoons raw cashew butter or (whole raw sunflower seeds w/ a little water blended in the Nutribullet) 2 tablespoons ﬁltered water 1 small garlic clove, pressed 1 tablespoon unpasteurized apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon ume plum vinegar 2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard Sea salt, to taste Freshly ground black pepper 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Stir in garlic, vinegars, mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add olive oil, mix again until smooth and creamy, season to taste, and set aside. Note: Use the Nutribullet for a perfectly creamy texture instantly.
MAKE THE SALAD: Place kale, red cabbage, carrot, fennel, scallions, and sunﬂower seeds in a large salad bowl; toss to combine. Drizzle with dressing; toss until slaw is evenly coated and serve.

Note: I make this slaw salad with whatever veggies I have. I use thin sliced or grated radishes, thin sliced cucumber, diced zucchini etc. Its basically “the kitchen sink salad”
