Vinegar Summer Slaw

A healthy alternative to creamy coleslaw with colorful shreds of red cabbage, broccoli and carrots combined with a vinegar-oil, maple and mustard dressing.

This plant-based and light take on a summer staple is my favorite! It only takes 5 minutes and 2 steps to prepare which makes it my go-to when I need a quick side of vegetables. I love to pair it with anything BBQ, add it to a salad or just eat it as is.
