My favorite kind of recipe is one that is simple, fast, healthy, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Now, I love making complicated, fancy dishes as well, but for every day life the former are much, much better. (Especially when there is a two-year old running around and a nine-month old trying to eat everything.)
I don’t know if this counts as a recipe, but I had to share! I posted this on Instagram (@coreysuzanne) about a week ago, and am still loving the recipe. I have had it so many times over the past few days. I ate it with BBQ chicken, as a salad with some avocado and tomatoes, with a baked potato, on a sandwich. The possibilities are endless!
If you haven’t tried Tessemea’s dressings yet, then hurry up and get to your local Whole Foods (or the like) and get yourself a bottle! Its in the produce section of our Whole Foods and they have been doing a ton of promotions lately, so there are always free samples
You guys, I am not a dressing-buying kind of person. I am a olive oil and vinegar kind of person. I don’t like ranch, and I don’t like blue cheese. I really hate mayo and any thing that has that flavor or smily consistency. I know, I’m picky, but its just so gross. (Sorry if you have a love for the stuff. We can still be friends!) Even though I hardly ever buy dressings, I picked up a bottle of Tessemae’s Cracked Pepper Dressing on a whim. A dear friend of mine loves their stuff and I thought I could give it a try.
So, what makes Tessemae’s so darn good? “No to artificial ingredients, no to stabilizers, and no to stuff that was invented in a chemistry lab. ” (source) Its totally natural, totally real, and totally delicious! There is nothing in this dressing that your body won’t love. Gluten, grain, dairy, sugar, and soy free; as well as being kosher, paleo and vegan. Plus its got the official Whole30 approval stamp!
Convinced? Got your purse and ready to run out to Whole Foods? Or get your online order going? Great! Now onto this recipe!
Fast and Easy, Two Ingredient Coleslaw
- 2 cups organic coleslaw mix (make your own by shredding cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots)
- 2 tablespoons Tessemae’s Cracked Pepper Dressing
Tossing both ingredients together and let sit for about 5-10 minutes.
Serve with BBQ, fried chicken, sandwiches, or as a salad, or side dish for pretty much any meal.
How freaking easy is that?!? I don’t think I have ever written a shorter or easier recipe. This is just such an awesome side dish or salad starter. I love it!
P.S. I haven’t tried mixing the dressing with some Greek yogurt for a creamy slaw, because I prefer a vinegar based slaw. If you like the creamy please try this and let me know what you think
