  • Why do I like it?

First of all - the color is unreal!  I just love mixing the purple of the cabbage with the shades of green from the lettuce, parsley, capers and avocado.  It is easily put together without much prep work.  I have brought it several times to dinner parties where everyone just loved it.  The textures work well with the crunch of the cabbage offset by the avocado and capers, as well as the tanginess of the capers with the sweetness of the avocado.

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

Instead of making a slaw, I decided to deconstruct the dish and place it on a bed of greens.  I used organic romaine.  I think it would work well with butter lettuce as well.  Just make sure to use a crunchy lettuce.  

I substituted almond butter for the tahini in the dressing.

The dressing was a bit strong for me so I opted to squeeze some lemon over the top.  You can also use fresh lime juice.
