Secret Recipe Club

Y’all…it’s that time again.

Secret Recipe Club time.

This month I was absolutely delighted that my secret blogger was Kate, the lovely lady behind Kate’s Kitchen.

Kate is a financial planner who loves to cook. Her husband is also a professional sous chef, so obviously, I am super jealous.

I’m sure they just have amazing food ALL THE TIME!

Kate, can you come help me with my taxes? I will totally bake you a cake and we can eat it over a nice cup of coffee.

I’m pretty sure in all the years that I have been a member of this awesome group of food bloggers, I have yet to make something that isn’t a dessert.

Well, Kate’s broad recipe index opened up my mind to giving something other that cookies, cake, and pie a chance.

Oh, but you know it was something that I absolutely adore.

Slaw.

Not just any slaw.

Guacamole Slaw.

People, people…this is genius!

This is pretty much two of my favorite things in one…

This is as creamy as a coleslaw can get.

With greek yogurt & avocado…that’s one creamy smash-bang combo.

  1. I’m so glad you loved this as much as I did Chelsy!

  2. I have to make this ! Look really yumm! xo

  3. Hello there, waving at you from Group D!

    Yes, I am sold – I love this type of recipe and will definitely make it – do you think it would work with Napa cabbage? I have a big head in the fridge (not my head, the cabbage 🙂 and would love to put it to use in this concoction, however I am afraid it might become a bit too limp. What do you think?

    • Chelsy says:

      Hey Sally! Hahah you crack me up 🙂 I think you are right about the slaw turning out too limp. Napa is pretty delicate, but if you want to use it, maybe you could use just half the avocado/yogurt ingredients and see if the dressing doesn’t hold it down too much. Hope that helps 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Guacamole Slaw sounds so wonderful! I hate mayo based coleslaw and always opt for spicy vinegar based, but I could totally get behind this. Great SRC post!

  5. This looks heavenly! I’d eat the entire bowl myself!

  6. Wow, this does sound & look absolutely incredible! One question – does it turn brown with time the way guacamole does, or does the Greek yogurt keep it this nice color?

  7. Kate and Connie are geniuses and so are you for picking this dish. Delicious!

  8. Looks just right.
