DASH Diet Cookbook: Rainbow Slaw

Multicolored slaw for any occasion.

A staple salad from the DASH Diet Cookbook for Beginners.

Unlike most salads, this healthy meal prep recipe will last in the fridge for a few days. In addition to uber nutritious cabbage, a few extra ingredients contribute even more antioxidants, fiber and of course, flavor. Take some help from the store and buy “coleslaw mix” without dressing which is shredded cabbage and carrots.

    Excellent recipe. My local grocery did not have cabbage slaw, so I used a “broccoli slaw” instead. The dressing was light yet flavorful. And the tomatoes added extra liquid to the dressing. Just so yummy and quite filling. Thank you!

  2. #2 lists onion in the ingredients to add to the dressing. I don’t see onions in the ingredients. Am I overlooking them??? How much onion is called for?
    Thank you.
