Healthy Coleslaw

Like its cruciferous vegetable cousins kale and broccoli, cabbage is chock-full of nutrients. It’s also the main ingredient in summer staple coleslaw, but picnickers beware: that mayonnaise-drenched side salad is packed with fat and calories. Opt for a healthier version, like the one below.
