Last week, Becky and I made a great meal and I had to share it. It was a lemongrass burger with carrot slaw and a kale salad and the best coconut oil mayo. It was so good – the kids ate every bite… so you know that it was good.
Becky and I owe the flavor to the Coconut Oil Mayo – it gave it a fresh taste that was unbeatable. Coconut Oil Mayo is from Chosen Foods – a San Diego-based health food company that believes real food provides true nourishment.

Meanwhile, combine carrots, 1 T sugar, 2 T. vinegar, a pinch of salt and 1/2 cup water. Cook in a pot over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In another bowl, combine ground beef, lemongrass & garlic paste. Mix. Form them into patties and cook.
Once cooked, place these on your potato buns. Top with carrot mixture.
Spread Coconut Oil Mayo on buns. This makes it so much more flavorful!
If your someone that likes a little kick to your burger, try adding a little cajun mayonnaise. It’s is absolutely delicious!
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil Mayo
1/2 Teaspoon of cajun seasoning
1 Tablespoon one Sriracha (2 Tablespoons if you like a little more heat…right up my alley)
Mix all ingredients together and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until ready to use.
For this simple kale salad, we just chopped up potatoes, drizzled them in olive oil and salt and cooked them over medium heat. Once they were done, we tossed them in a bowl with kale, chopped onion, 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil Mayo, 2 teaspoons of sugar and a pinch of salt. It was really good.
All in all, dinner was a hit:
