Confetti Slaw

This is a light and mayo-free coleslaw that makes a really great alternative to your average salad. Great as a side dish to any meal.

4 cups finely chopped red cabbage (I did 2 cups red, 2 cups green)
1/2 large red bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
1/2 large yellow bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 seeded, minced jalapeno chile, *** optional, I omitted 

3 TBSP olive oil
3 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP cider (or white) vinegar
1 1/2 TBSP finely chopped mint
1 TBSP finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic, minced

In a large bowl toss together your chopped cabbage, peppers, green onion, and jalapeno (if using). Make your dressing in a small bowl and toss them together until all the veggies are evenly coated. Season with a little S & P if desired. Serve chilled or at room temperature as a side dish to any meal!
