Simple Healthy Slaw

Simple Healthy Slaw

Let’s talk about this healthy slaw recipe. It’s proof that sometimes, the most humble of ingredients can make for the best recipes.

Take cheap cabbage, with all of its potent antioxidants, and toss it with carrots, the humble root vegetable that is packed with beta carotene. Drizzle in a simple, garlicky lemon dressing (no mayonnaise or vinegar here). For extra texture and savory flavor, add some freshly toasted seeds to the mix. Toasting them makes all the difference.

Ta da! You have a colorful coleslaw that’s bursting with fresh flavor and amazing health benefits.

This slaw is one of my favorite simple side dishes, so I’m sharing it today with updated photos in the hopes that it captures your attention. It keeps well in the fridge for up to four days, so it’s a very easy way to add a burst of color and fresh flavor to your meals.

Of course, this slaw goes great with veggie burgers and grilled mains in the summertime. It would also be fantastic with my vegetarian chili, sandwiches of any kind, and rich meals that need something light for balance (even mac and cheese).

Ingredients:

Coleslaw

  • 2 cups finely sliced purple cabbage (one small cabbage will be more than plenty)
  • 2 cups finely sliced green cabbage (one small cabbage will be more than plenty)
  • 2 cups shredded carrots (I used store-bought shredded organic carrots, but you could also grate them on a box grater, in a food processor, or julienne the carrots with a sharp knife)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Up to ¾ cup mixed seeds (I used mostly pepitas—AKA green pumpkin seeds—and sunflower seeds, with some sesame seeds and poppy seeds)

Lemon dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Prep Time:
15 minutes
Cook Time:
5 minutes
