Recipe: Summer Slaw

- One small head of raw cauliflower (pulsed in the blender so it is smaller than diced)
- Quarter head of red cabbage, chopped
- 1 cup of hardy greens, I chose collard greens, chopped
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1/2 c olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped (optional)
- 3/4 cup orange slices

Blend together pine nuts, orange juice, olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper until smooth, add the mint last and briefly pulse.  Pour over the chopped ingredients and mix.  If you like your slaws a little on the sweeter side, add a touch of xylitol, coconut nectar or honey.
