Avocado Coleslaw

This creamy Avocado Coleslaw is the perfect side dish for your next cookout.

This is an amazing "hubby-made" side salad.  I have no idea how he came up with this idea but I am so glad he did.  I know he basically found a head of cabbage in the fridge and had some avocados that needed to be used and he just got creative.  As a matter of fact, this slaw was so good he has actually made it three times already.

Hubby has a tendency to do one thing whenever he cooks (without fail) he never remembers a recipe or how he made anything.  As soon as I tasted this, I grabbed a pen and said, "Tell me exactly what's in this!"  

I recommend you add the mayonnaise a little at a time to the recipe and then adjust for your taste.  I  prefer the recipe with less mayo but I am going to share it with you the way Hubby made it (and likes it.)  

I think this slaw would be the perfect accompaniment to some delicious fish tacos - and that will definitely be happening in the near future. But for now I'll just grab a spoon and eat it straight out of the bowl...enjoy!!!

1 shallot, shaved
2 avocados, peeled and sliced
1/2 head of cabbage, shredded
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

Combine everything in a bowl, adding the mayo a little at a time. Garnish with some cilantro and serve.

Last year at this time I made a Pallet Garden.
Two years ago at this time I made Chicken and Chickpea Stew.
Three years ago at this time I made Creamy Garlicky Shrimp over Fettuccine.
