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.
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.
- 4 cups shredded cabbage (I used half a large head of cabbage)
- 1 cup shredded carrots (2 medium)
- 4 shredded radishes
- 2 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp dill seeds
- ½ tsp celery seed
- 1 tbs dried parsley (or ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped)
- ¼ cup white vinegar
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Combine cabbage, carrots and radishes, sugar, dill, celery seed and parsley in a large bowl. Combine vinegar and oil. Pour over slaw mixture and toss. Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours.
