In the summer when there are a lot of fresh vegetables in our garden and at the farmer’s market, one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer vegetables is in a vegetable slaw. Many times when you hear “slaw recipe,” you automatically think of coleslaw drenched in a heavy mayonnaise like dressing. While that’s certainly a great way to enjoy cabbage, there are a lot of slaw recipes that use vegetables other than cabbage (like this bok choy slaw recipe) and don’t include mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is fairly high in fat and isn’t necessarily something I want to eat regularly. Commercially prepared mayonnaise generally has canola oil which I try to avoid.
