    Steph’s note: Please give a super warm welcome to my guest blogger Candace, better known around the Web as the creative mind behind Beyoutifully Delicious. She’s incredibly sweet and wickedly innovative in the kitchen, and I know you’re going to love her Paleo recipes. In fact, look out for part two of this recipe (a Strawberry Chili Grilled Chicken) that’ll be posting next week! Without further adieu, take it away Candace!

    Coleslaw was never really my thing. Anytime I had it, it was mushy, drippy and tasted like that Miracle Whip crap. Bleh!

    The greatest thing about cooking is you can always make something your own and give it your personal signature. I love peanut dressing and Pad Thai but I have really given up the peanut madness since turning my food over to the “Paleo Way.” I think I was having issues with it anyhow.

    I love the texture of Napa cabbage so I make this star of the show, complimented by grated beets which are perfect for sweeping out those pesky phytoestrogens, carrots and fresh pineapple. No canned fruit in syrup here! This combination makes the perfect second post-workout meal where I start tapering off my carbs, upping my fat along with another big hunk o’ protein. It’s satisfying without leaving me weighted down.

    Ingredients

    • For the slaw
    • 1 cup shredded carrots
    • 1 cup grated beets
    • 3 cups shredded Napa Cabbage
    • 1 cup fresh chopped pineapple
    • 2 Tablespoons crushed raw cashews
    • 2 Tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
    • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, torn

    • 1/2 cup water

    • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
    • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce

    • Pinch of salt
    • Grind of fresh black pepper

    Instructions

    1. Make sure you dry the veggies with paper towels or kitchen towels if they’re really damp. The pineapple will add moisture so you don’t need any extra.

    1. Is there a substitution for the coconut vinegar? I have everything else in hand to make the dressing, but the only way for me to get coconut vinegar it’s to order it online.

    2. Thank you so much for this great site. My husband and I are both 58 years old and we are just starting Paleo.
      I have so much to learn. Your site is going to be a major part of educating me. Thanks again for this great site.

    3. This looks amazing. However I am allergic to pineapple. Do you have a suggestion on what I could use instead?
      Thanks

    5. Just tried this tonight and LOVE! I added mango with the pineapple and also red cabbage for extra “crunch n munch”! This is the best since I’m not a slaw person either… So fresh and delish!
