This was my dad's creation: veggie slaw with a creamy ginger dressing. It was definitely a nice change from the usual green leafy salads. This was crunchy, satisfying and definitely a hit at our family Sunday night dinner!
Crunchy Veggie Slaw
1 head of purple cabbage, shredded
2 carrots peeled anc chopped
1 red pepper, julienned
1 yellow pepper, julienned
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 cup chopped almonds or cashews
Add all ingredients into a bowl and serve with dressing. This would also pair well with my turmeric dressing.
Creamy Ginger Dressing
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup greek yogourt (leave out if vegan or try unsweetened coconut yogurt)
1 clove of garlic
1/2 thumb sized piece of ginger
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp honey
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
Pair this salad with a lean protein like fish or chicken (we had homemade veggie burgers!) and a complex carb like quinoa for a nourishing meal. Oh and we can't leave out the avocado!
Try it tonight and don't forget to tag me if you make any of my recipes!
Your's in health,
