Free Healthy Recipe - Canadian Coleslaw

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Wheat Free

One of the wonderful things about travel is discovering new recipes and ingredients, and while there's nothing new about coleslaw, this version, courtesy of our wonderful host and friend Nicole, with its crunchy noodles and toasted almonds, lifts the bar on any coleslaw I've ever tasted.
I'm still in search of the same noodles Nicole used which gave the dish it's unique "scrunch factor ", but this version uses noodles available from supermarkets in Australia and comes a close second.

Ingredients
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup carrot, grated
4 cup cabbage, shredded
4 cup shallots, finely sliced
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
Method

Combine the carrots, cabbage, shallots in a bowl. Dry roast the almonds in a small pan until golden.
Using a rolling pin, grind the dried noodles until they have broken down into small pieces.
Mix the almonds and ground noodles through the cabbage mix.
Combine the olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup and seasoning together and mix through the coleslaw.

Delicious served with grilled meat or fish.
