A minty spin on coleslaw inspired by a traditional Lebanese dish.
Vanns Peppermint Leaves are a powerhouse flavor addition here to the bright combination of crisp, raw green cabbage and a lemon-garlic dressing. This dish is a great side for a hearty, warmly-spiced stew or tagine, cutting through thick, savory sauces with its cool flavors. The mint is refreshing and surprising, but not overpowering, and it really brings out the sweetness of the cabbage that you might have forgotten about. If you love Middle Eastern flavors, this is a great dish to have in your repertoire, as a way to quickly add a cooling vegetable side to just about any meal.
