TIP

To easily slide the sourwood honey out of the 1 T measure - measure the vinegar and olive oil first to wet/grease the tablespoon, then use for measuring the honey.

To make your own zoodles, or similar cuts, you can use a zoodle maker, use a mandolin, use a vegetable peeler to make wide strips or use a knife to cut thin strips.

The slaw is best served immediately, for crisp, clean bright texture and flavor. If you prefer a softer texture and more developed flavor, allow the slaw to marinate, refrigerated, for 30 minutes before serving.
