Green Cabbage Slaw Recipe

This is a versatile recipe that you can prepare on Sunday and eat throughout the week as a side dish or mixed in with other foods.

How to Enjoy Green Cabbage Slaw

While this can be eaten by itself as a side dish. I like to add it as a topper for bean dishes, like Dad’s Easy Chili. For me, the coolness of this dish along with its crunchy texture makes it a good pairing for spicy bean dishes.

You can also put a big scoop of it on top of a mixed green salad. This will double up on your veggies and cut down on the amount of salad dressing you need.
