RED BEAN AND CABBAGE SLAW

     I love cabbage and my first option is always to stew it like I stew everything else, with tomatoes, onion, garlic and peperoncino. This time, I decided to keep it fresh and made this really simple slaw with cabbage from the Woodside CSA, red beans from Cayuga Pure Organics, cilantro from the garden, chopped pecans, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. So easy and the flavors really complement each other well.

Hi Kathy! Yes, the beans were dried. I soaked the overnight, then boiled them the next day until they were soft. I always wait until the end to salt them, otherwise they take longer to cook and get gassy!
