How to Make Nitty Gritty Dirt Farm's Slaw


  1. Chop cabbages, radishes and broccoli florets into very small pieces. With a knife or vegetable peeler, pare the tough outer layer of the broccoli stalks to reveal the pale core. Chop the cores the same size as the vegetables.
  2. Put all the chopped vegetables in a large bowl and add the green onions and green beans. Toss to mix.
  3. For the dressing: Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, ginger, salt and pepper according to taste. Add the dressing to the slaw. Toss well to coat. Cover and refrigerate about an hour before serving. The slaw will remain crunchy for at least eight hours.
  4. NOTE: Dressing recipe can be doubled if you desire a heavier dressed slaw.
