My friend Paul sifts through the raw, rocky ore of the Internet like Yukon Cornelius searched for silver. You might remember Paul from my Hibiscus-Cherry Cooler post – he’s the one who sent me 3 lbs. of hibiscus tea because he’d read that it had cancer-fighting properties. And what Paul has unearthed in his meticulous research is that the consumption of animal products is related to the plethora of diseases plaguing too many Americans. Imagine that!
Taking this information to heart, Paul has greatly reduced his intake of animal products and increased the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables. He has embraced kale and placed beans high on a plant-based pedestal. He doesn’t follow recipes, he just chops and combines and cooks. His concoctions are nutritional powerhouses with an emphasis on cancer-fighting superfoods.

Don’t let the crazy ingredient list throw you off. It works! This veggie slaw is loaded with crunch, flavor, and really healthy ingredients.

- 1/4 cup Vidalia onion, chopped (I soak mine in cold water for about 15 minutes)
- 2 ribs celery, chopped

- 1 small grapefruit, peeled (squeeze the juice from the peel into the bowl), chopped into small pieces
- zest of 1 lemon
- zest of 1 lime
- splash of white wine or sherry vinegar
- pinch ground black pepper
- Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir well to combine.

Had to have those, Brandi! I got them at an Asian market.

Gorgeous food photo there! And I love grapefruit in a salad! Going to put this together.
I’d never tried grapefruit in a salad before and I really loved it.
sounds like it’s something. I love slaws, and a brokkoli slaw is already a thing, so I guess this isn’t that weird after all ^^
True enough! I’d never used grapefruit in a salad before – let alone a slaw, so it sounded weird to me anyway ;-)!
Have you ever tried raw fennel slaw/salad with orange? It’s sooooo refreshing in summer!
Oh it’s wonderful!
That’s a very regal looking purple slaw and I imagine it has quite a zing to it with all that citrus juice. One to wake you up on a hot day!
It is very zingy 🙂
What beautiful appetizing pictures, dear Annie! Waw!!! Oil-free hey? Wonderful & pretty tasty looking too!
Oil free sounds so perfect and this looks too delicious 😀
How colorful! You’re pictures are amazing! I always get hungry of them!
Thank you so much!
Err…not sure if I am supposed to be entering again?! How confusing! I don’t often get to enter giveaways so the protocol escapes me ;). Cheers, again, for the chance to enter. It makes a lovely change 🙂
I think you can enter multiple times for certain things – like “sharing” the giveaway. It makes me very happy to be able to share these goodies worldwide!
Cheers for the chance to win. We “other worlders” often feel excluded when we read U.S. blogs. We completely understand why the give aways can’t be open to everyone and so it’s lovely to be able to enter 🙂
That looks so good. I love cabbage based salads… mostly because I know they will keep for a few days. Love that!
Exactly! And they really do get better.
That looks delicious, and it’s got my favorite veggie and one of my favorite fruits in it!
I love so much about this post, from Paul embracing a more plant based diet, to sharing those ingredients for you to work your magic, TO THIS SLAW!! This looks amazing!!!!
I’m really proud of Paul. He’s walking every day and is making smart choices about his food. Bonus is he shares his ideas with me!
Um, I think I really like Paulie. Really wishing I had another can of jackfruit and a head of cabbage right now. I could eat that for breakfast 🙂
Last time I was at the Asian market I bought 10 cans of the stuff!
I find it funny that Jackfruit is so good. Back in the day when I worked for a Thai importer I was “what do people do with this?” every time I saw it in the warehouse…..
I love the grapefruit in this. I always love that citrus / vinegar party goin on. Did you use red grapefruit?
I can just imagine a bowl of this with a couple ears of fresh corn too. Thx Annie. Thx Paul 😛
Corn is so good right now! I could eat just that for dinner!
Yes – red grapefruit.
Love that video from the sexy vegan, he cracks me up 🙂 I have always wanted to try my hand at something jackfruity… maybe on a sandwich with this slaw? Sounds awesome!
A jackfruit video? Haven’t seen it! I’m really late to the jackfruit party, but I’m convert. Amazing.
that salad looks so pretty!
Such nice shots!
Appreciate that, Sarah!
Looks and sounds SO fresh Annie! Intriguing to say the least! xx
Such vibrant colors in this slaw! Definitely looks like a winner on top of the BBQ jackfruit or by itself.
I’ve never had grapefruit in a slaw, but I bet that adds so much! It sounds really refreshing!
Wow the colours are gorgeous! I’m not one for grapefruit but I am imagining this with tangerines and my mouth is watering!
Wauw!! I just saw my email I am selected of one of the 16 people for winning the sweetener contest!! I think you selected me, and for that I want to thank you so much!! Me, as ‘vegan junior’, am really really really happy to try out a natural sweetener!! Thanks again!! 🙂
You didn’t just win, girl – you won the GRAND prize!! I was so happy when I saw your name come up as the winner (shhh, don’t tell anyone I said that 😉 )!
How awesome!!! 😀 Thanks so much!!!
Today I received my price! I sent it to my uncle in New Mexico, who I am visiting for a couple weeks!
The products are very new to me, but I can’t wait to try them out. The recipes I got as well look amazing!! Thank you so much! 🙂
Woohooo! Seriously, I was wondering just yesterday if you’d gotten your stuff! So glad! Hope you’ll let me know how you like the products. Have a wonderful time in New Mexico (it’s beautiful)!
Love the colors.. so vibrant 🙂
This sounds wonderful! I’m working on a sandwich recipe that calls for a slaw topping… I think I know which recipe I’ll be linking to!!
