*Coleslaw Mix:  Any coleslaw mix will work with this recipe.  We used a rainbow blend slaw which consisted of shredded broccoli, carrots, red cabbage, cauliflower, and kohlrabi. 

*Tamari:We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium.  You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos. 

*Miso:  We used Miso Master Organic Mellow White Premium Lite Miso, Certified Gluten Free.  Miso really lends itself to balancing flavors when you don’t use oil.  You can also use chickpea miso for a soy free version.

*Sea Salt:  Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.

*Makes:  3 cups

*Storage:  Refrigerate, use within 5 days.
