Healthy Coleslaw {Mom’s Kitchen}

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you had a nice Halloween weekend! We were in Philadelphia for one of my close friend’s weddings. It was a beautiful day filled with friends and lots of love.  I got the honor of standing up with her on her day, which was so fun!

Today (since I am sure many of us ate a few pieces of Halloween candy) I thought I would balance it out with something healthy. Today I am sharing my Mom’s Healthy Coleslaw recipe—a great recipe to bookmark for a day when you need to bring a salad to a potluck or picnic or want a healthy, easy salad to eat throughout the week.

Healthy Coleslaw

I made a huge batch of this coleslaw over a weekend and ate it as part of my lunch over the following week.  I like the light flavor of the dressing mixed with the dill and celery seeds.  It is packed full of healthy stuff like carrots, coleslaw and radishes and a bit of sugar for sweetness.

I love making my Mom’s recipes because I feel closer to her (we live 12 hours away!).  It is fun to be able to involve her in my blog (she is such a good cook, I just have to share her with you) and showcase her talents! My Mom is always good for a healthy salad recipe and this one doesn’t disappoint.
