Healthy Coastal Coleslaw
I’ll never forget the first time my sweet friend made this dish for my family. Well, actually I don’t remember all the details. I’m pretty sure I was knee deep in babies and barely awake but it made quite an impression and became a staple!
Sweet, citrus-y, crisp & salty.
Just last week we packed it for a beach day! It was so cool and satisfying.
Yes. My kids eat it and LOVE it.
The original recipe will always be a treasure for me because of who introduced me to it but I had to make some heal-thy adjustments. Same amazing flavor. More veggies. Less junk.

You really can’t mess this up. Throw it together for a potluck. Serve it as a side. Put it in a wrap. It’s definitely a must try!
