Super Food Coleslaw Recipe
Seasonal salads are healthier and more flavourful, especially when you grow the ingredients yourself or get them locally at the farmer’s market. Autumn and winter salads focus on seasonal winterkeeper vegetables like cabbages, carrots, beets, and winter squashes.
This coleslaw recipe omits the heavy mayonnaise based dressings and focuses on bold flavour with healthier vinaigrettes. Add bright purple cabbage, rainbow carrots, and anthocyanin rich pomegranates and you’ve got a superfood salad fit for a celebration meal.
This 3 ingredient coleslaw is at its best in November! Try it for Thanksgiving or anytime when carrots, cabbage, and pomegranates are in season.
1 lb. rainbow coloured carrots
1 small purple cabbage
¼ cup blood orange infused olive oil
¼ cup ginger-honey white balsamic vinegar
¼ tsp. Himalayan salt
Scrub carrots and tip and tail them. There is no need to peel them if they are fresh. Using a coarse grater, grate them and put in a bowl.
Wash the cabbage and remove the outer leaves. Grate the cabbage on the coarse side of a box grater. Place in the bowl.
Remove the pips from 1 pomegranate. Add the pips to the bowl. Stir the ingredients together.
Pour over the slaw in the bowl the olive oil and white balsamic vinegar. Toss lightly. Allow the flavours to mix while the salad chills for 30 min or longer. Serve.
This can be made a day ahead. Since there are no eggs or onions, the risk for contamination is minimized.

Thanksgiving is all about family, friends and delicious food. Luckily, the food blogging community is all about these things as well. To celebrate the holiday, Meghan from Cake ‘n Knife and Susannah from Feast + West are hosting Blogsgiving Dinner. There are more than 60 blogs sharing recipes this week!
The idea is based on an old-fashioned potluck dinner party. Each blogger is bringing one or more dishes to the party, so be sure to stop by each one and get some ideas for your own Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be posting to social media with the hashtag #blogsgivingdinner, but you can see the whole menu in Part 1 and Part 2 of the recipe round-up.
