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. 

Eat Seasonal December Guide

To celebrate December, I created a simple but delicious cabbage coleslaw made with both green cabbage and radicchio. For added freshness and flavor, I threw in minced scallions and fragrant cilantro.

Easy Cabbage Coleslaw with Honey Lime Dressing

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.

    This slaw sounds wonderful. I have one I created that is my go-to recipe, but I get tired of it, so it’s nice to have another one.

      What is your go to??

        My go-to, my invention is 1 head sliced cabbage with a dressing that includes 2 cups rice vinegar, 1 cup water, ~1/2t garlic powder, 2t crushed coriander seed, and ¼ cup neutral-flavored oil (I use avocado oil). I used to do it with Grains of Paradise in place of the coriander, but like the coriander better. You need to let it sit for at least 24 hours before serving. The oil is necessary to get the flavor to penetrate and to soften the cabbage (I’ve tried it without and it doesn’t work). If you try it I hope you enjoy it.

    I don’t think it’s ever occurred to me to use yogurt in slaw. You are brilliant!

    So simple and elegant. I appreciate that you used yogurt to dress the slaw–a wonderful substitute for the usual mayo, which sometimes feels too-much.

      Yes I totally agree with you on the mayo!!

    This slaw is perfect for those nights when I just don’t feel like cooking veggies and just want to throw something together. I bet this would pair perfectly with chickpeas!

    This vinaigrette sounds spoon-licking good. And gosh do I need a big crunchy salad right about now! One too many cookies for me!
