Purple Coleslaw Tips

Get creative with the spices in the dressing. Add a little kick with some cayenne pepper or mustard.

To add even more nutrition and color to your purple coleslaw, try adding nutrient-dense veggies and herbs like cilantro, parsley, chives, green onion, or lemon zest.

For a unique twist, try swapping out the cabbage for broccoli. To make this swap even easier, you can find bags of organic broccoli slaw at Trader Joe’s.

This purple coleslaw keeps well in the fridge for 3-4 days. Unlike other salads, this cabbage slaw is one that can actually get better when it’s allowed to sit for a bit in the fridge. It gives the flavors a chance to really meld and lets the dressing soak up a bit into the crunchy veggies.

This makes a tasty side to our Amazing Meatloaf or Turkey and Zucchini Poppers!
