A little lemon juice sprinkled over fresh vegetables and fruit brings out their flavors and pulls them together so they taste great! We prefer this over the usual creamy salad dressing associated with slaw. There is just enough cabbage to offer its nutritional value without turning kids off to its bitter taste.
4, depending on ages
1 cup shredded or thinly sliced carrots, organic if possible
1 cup shredded or thinly sliced apples with skin, organic
1/3 cup shredded or sliced red cabbage
About 2 Tbsp lemon juice or to taste
1/4 cup dried blueberriesPlace ingredients in bowl. Stir until well mixed. Gently stir into slaw mix. Add to slaw. Stir until evenly distributed. Serve!
Replace dried blueberries with cranberries or raisins if you chose. Remember, a little goes a long way so you can make one bag last a long time. Increase the number of food groups by adding nuts, seeds, and/or cheese. Be brave and stir in some finely choped mint leaves – a common lightly flavored herb!
