  • Nutrition Tip

    Carrots, beets, apples, bok choy, fennel, and similar vegetables would make an equally appetizing slaw with this dressing.

    Use seasonal and locally sourced produce that has been picked before the peak of ripeness for richer flavors and higher nutrient content. Explore your local farmer's market or join a community supported agriculture group to explore more produce options that would go great with a light dressing.
