If it is still warm enough where you live to have a picnic with friends this nutritious and healthy slaw salad by Emma Marshall Nutrition would be ideal. It will also make an excellent complement to the main dish on a cold rainy day. I think that red cabbage works just as well in the Autumn and Winter as it does in the Summer.
It’s all about the colours 🌈 The more colour you add to your plate the greater the diversity of micronutrients and photochemicals. Try and make every meal an opportunity to fill up on nutrient dense food
This stunning slaw is a great side dish or can be a filling main course too ✨
Emma’s dressing is made with kefir, a probiotic to help restore the balance of friendly bacteria in our gut ✅

What a riot of color. How beautiful. Will definitely try this.
Thank you. I will add this to our Labor Day menu next weekend. It’s so colorful and I know it will be delicious, with the lime, soy sauce, and ginger!
Very late to the party but what a gorgeous-looking salad and I’m particularly impressed by the use of kefir in a dressing. Thank you for the recipe.
