For some unknown reason I recently had a craving for slaw! Here's my version of it with the addition of shredded zucchini. MUST get rid of this zucchini any way I can!

1/3 cup thinly sliced onion.
juice from 1/2 lime
1 Truvia packet (or the equivalent of other sugar, a tsp or so)
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar (I used roasted garlic flavor)
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Put the cabbage, zucchini and onion in a large bowl or container. In a smaller bowl whisk the vinaigrette together and pour over the cabbage. Blend well and season with salt and pepper to taste. This can be served immediately but it's best if it "marries" in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Serves 4.
