This crunchy cabbage slaw is made with scallions and cilantro then tossed with a creamy honey yogurt lime vinaigrette.
We eat salads all year round but as the seasons change, so do the vegetables in our bowl. Even though the ground is cold and the air is crisp, there is still plenty of produce in season to take center stage on your kitchen table.
To celebrate December, I created a simple but delicious cabbage slaw made with both green cabbage and radicchio. For added freshness and flavor, I threw in minced scallions and fragrant cilantro.
To tie it all together, I whipped up a simple honey lime yogurt vinaigrette that provides the perfect sweet, tangy and creamy dressing for this cabbage slaw. Serve with leftover roasted chicken or pork tenderloin to turn it into a complete meal that is naturally healthy, protein-packed and gluten free.
