This avocado slaw makes an incredible side dish for any meal on the grill this summer — and I love eating the leftovers for a healthy lunch the next day.
From Lush Life: Food & Drinks from the Garden: “This avocado slaw has been a consistent hit at my house for years, whether it’s for a party for fifty or a regular at-home Taco Tuesday night. You can use whatever fresh radishes and cabbage you have on hand. I use a handheld mandoline to slice the carrots and radishes thinly. You can make it a few hours in advance—I even love it the next day.”

dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan, vegetarian
1 head napa or savoy cabbage (about 2½ pounds)
3 avocados, halved, chopped on the bias
2 carrots, very thinly sliced into rounds
5 radishes, very thinly sliced
½ cup fresh lime juice (from 4 to 5 large limes)
3 tablespoons (packed) cilantro leaves
1 jalapeño chile, halved, seeded, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Cut the cabbage lengthwise in half and then cut lengthwise in half again for a total of 4 quarters. Cut out the core, then cut the cabbage into thin diagonal strips—a sort of julienne vibe. Toss cabbage in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients.
(Can be made 4 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate.)
