What's "the most important vegetable in the world" for nutritional benefits AND cancer fighting ability? Well, maybe cabbage isn't your favorite vegetable... until you try this delicious salad! See our favorite variant, Kale Slaw Salad.
Cabbage and cole slaw are not especially exciting.
Chard is an attractive garnish.
Eat them for good health?
The thought had never occurred to me until I read The 11 Best Foods You Aren't Eating (NYTimes.com) which suggested we eat more cabbage, cole slaw and chard for good health.
I don't especially enjoy cabbage or cole slaw and raw chard is too tough to eat by itself. Together they make a very tasty, attractive, interesting salad combination.
Chard Slaw Salad is fast, easy, inexpensive, very healthy and utterly delicious. It's become one of my favorite recipes.
Begin with prepared cole slaw fresh from the bag. Look at the luscious chard we found at our favorite grocery chain. Fresh Kale works well for this recipe too.
I washed and spun the chard, and now I'm tearing it up into tiny little pieces. Toss them together.
The deep green chard adds a lot of punch and personality to the slaw. This is a prepared peppercorn ranch salad dressing straight from the bottle. Voila! Fast, easy, inexpensive, very healthy. And utterly delicious.
Check out the calorie count on the bag - you can eat a lot of cole slaw for just a few calories. See the script and recipe posted on the Healthy hyphen Happiness dot com website.
I hope you'll enjoy Chard Slaw Salad!
