Healthy Slaw

When it comes to this slaw, slim has multiple meanings.

It’s super light and healthy since it’s made with whole, nutritious ingredients. So, it can easily be part of an overall eating plan that keeps you slim.

But the recipe itself is slim, too. Instead of fattening it up with hard-to-find ingredients you’ll have to spend lots of time chopping or complicated steps to making dressing, we use just five, simple ingredients.

That means you can whip up this delicious summer side dish for a barbecue, lunch, or dinner in just five minutes. Slim isn’t a word usually applied to time, but in this case, it just might work.


  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 cup green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard


  • In large bowl, place red and green cabbage and almonds.
  • In small bowl whisk together vinegar and mustard, drizzle on cabbage and toss.


Cabbage is a super nutritious vegetable filled with vitamins and minerals, and it can be hard to find ways to use it when it’s fresh. This slaw is the perfect simple way to eat it, along with almonds and an easy, flavorful dressing.
