Healthy Curried Coleslaw

Coleslaw is one of those classic dishes that work well at any event or makes a great side dish for dinner (like this chickpea salad). However, it can become pretty calorie-dense with a classic mayonnaise base. This curried coleslaw variation is a  bit of a twist on the traditional version, but it’s tasty, creamy, and best of all… healthy!

Curried Coleslaw — Made Healthily!

Cabbage — being part of the Brescia family of vegetables — comes with a variety of health perks. It’s extremely high in antioxidants, making it perfect for cancer prevention. It also contains a lot of vitamin C which helps repair wear and tear on the body.

Cabbage is loaded with fiber, beta-carotene, and many other minerals.

So that makes this dish perfect for you!
