CHIMICHURRI AIOLI COLESLAW

This recipe came about as a result of having leftovers.  I can’t bear to throw away food.  There were two egg yolks in the fridge, leftover Chimichurri Sauce, a lowly quarter of a cabbage – all needing to be used up.  I always said I would never make homemade Mayonnaise or Aioli, because I always thought I would eat too much of it.  But the good news is I can’t – it is too rich!  Plus – who knew it would be so super easy to make?  A good way to use up leftovers, and it tasted great too!

AIOLI:

2 organic egg yolks

2 minced garlic cloves

juice of one fresh lemon

salt to taste

1/2 cup of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 cup of Organic Grapeseed Oil

In a food processor, add the egg yolks, garlic cloves, fresh lemon, and salt.  Whiz up, and very slowly drizzle in the oils.  Continue to process until a thick creamy texture is achieved.  Adjust the salt and lemon to taste.  Doesn’t it look so pretty?

If you need a good Chimichurri Sauce recipe, there is one here.

METHOD FOR THE COLESLAW:

This is one of those recipes where you “taste as you go”

3-4 cups of shredded green cabbage

1 large grated carrot

3 Tblsp. minced Red onion

juice of one fresh small lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup Chimichuri Sauce – if necessary add more to taste

Fresh Aioli, by the tablespoon to taste

Add the shredded cabbage, carrot, red onion, salt and pepper and lemon juice in a bowl.  Pour in the Chimichuri Sauce tossing to coat.  Add the Aioli one tablespoon at at time, keep tasting and add more as needed, mixing well to evenly coat the coleslaw.

Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.

  • I love coleslaw! And I am loving your new chicken recipes – long may they continue. AND, I made your cauliflower recipe (using zucchini instead of pasta) it was delicious – Rick really liked it (and he was skeptical) :-) XO

    Thanks Janet! I love coleslaw too. Plus there are indeed more chicken recipes to come. Glad you liked the cauliflower recipe! :)

    I love cole slaw but the goitrogenic effect of raw cruciforms does a number on me. What I’m wondering is how this might work with taking the slaw and very lightly sauteeing, steaming or microwaving it before adding the aioli sauce. When I quit eating raw cruciforms, my hypothyroidism normalized.

    Christine – you could lightly steam or microwave the cabbage. It might taste good in terms of texture if you put in sliced celery too? That is interesting about the normalized hypothyroidism – in that case I would definitely lightly steam the cabbage first.

  • I love coleslaw and this sure looks yummy!!!
