Avocado Brocco-Slaw

It is no secret I am a huge fan of Paleomg. Juli is hilarious, loves food, and writes a mean blog post. She also makes a mean bacon chili, which I also made today.

But this. This was amazing.

Spicy Avocado Slaw

I adapted it a little, but not much. I mostly just wanted to get it down to one serving size. My self-control with avocados is about like my self-control with almond butter. And I have been almond-butter-free for nearly 3 months. "Hello, my name is Mariah..." ;)

Brocco-slaw. Incredible. Nothing against shredded cabbage, or chopping your own cabbage. Broccoli is just amazing.

Mini-photo shoot with the avocado. I swear I will finally be able to spell "avocado" by the time I am done with this post.


Oh, yum.

Does that look appetizing? Hopefully. That's what I was going for. My dad fondly referred to avocado as zest soap for most of his life. There's a reason.

Anyway, here's what I used:

1 avocado
1 cup broccoli coleslaw
Lime juice
Lemon juice
Olive oil, which I didn't use, but only because I forgot it.. Oops.

Spices, to taste:
  Chili powder
  Onion powder
  Garlic powder


Throw everything in a bowl except for the slaw and mash/mix.
Add the slaw.


I ate mine with leftover meatloaf. So yummy.

And check out Juli's page! :)

Ps. Anyone else need a day to recover from your vacation day?? ;) Ugh. Memorial Day post coming soon, I promise.
