These three variations on traditional slaw provide healthy recipes that will help you eat your veggies as part of a satisfying meal.
I try to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables every day, but sometimes when life gets busy the fruits and veggies suffer. When I know I have an extra busy week coming up, I like to make a big batch of slaw at the beginning of the week. I add it to my plate at lunch or dinner, and sometimes I have it for a mid-afternoon snack.
It may sound strange to eat this as a snack, but it’s really just a salad variation. It can sit in its dressing for several days, which makes it a great convenience food. And it goes so well with a variety of main dishes, so it’s an ideal make-ahead side dish.
Cabbage is a great base for so many dishes, and there’s no limit to the number of dressings and add-ins you can experiment with.
