In this wonderful era of uncommon salads, cabbage slaw is often overlooked––and it shouldn’t be. This is a delicious, light, and healthy coleslaw you can feel guiltless about eating and serving. We love it paired with a whole host of different dishes and cuisines—from barbecue, to Mexican dishes, to veggie burgers, to pulled pork. And of course it stands alone as a terrific salad. What we like even more––this is a terrific recipe to make ahead because it tastes just as good, or even better, the next day. This is a great side dish to add to your repertoire.
