Zucchini-Carrot Slaw

June 26, 2011


Author Notes: I love, love, love coleslaw. I love it with just about anything, with my barbeque, alone, in a pulled pork sandwich, and especially with my grilled shrimp or fish tacos. One evening I had a craving for grilled shrimp tacos so I whipped some up. I knew I had to have a slaw to go with it and I was looking for a change to my ordinary cabbage slaw. So, I created a "cabbage-less" slaw using shredded zucchini and carrots. The flavors are absolutely amazing, zesty lime, a hint of sweetness from the sugar, and a tangy bite from the Greek yogurt. Not to mention, this slaw is light and healthy! MANGIA!!!misschels
