Happy Healthy Slaw

Submitted by: RGROSKREUTZ

Introduction

Up the ante to a traditional slaw. Vegetarian recipe that could easily include more protein by adding more chia, hemp and sunflower seeds or even sprinkle in some rice or pea protein.

If you happen to be an omnivore, add some shredded chicken or pork to be a potluck salad.

Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 c Shredded Red Cabbage
    1 c Shredded Green Cabbage
    1 bag TJ's Organic Broccoli Slaw
    1 c Shredded Jicama
    1/2 c Thinly Sliced Red Onions
    1/2 c Raisins
    1/4 c Sunflower Seeds (Unsalted, Raw)
    3 T Hemp Seeds
    1/8 c Chia Seeds
    1/2 c Homemade Mayo
    1/4 c Balsamic Vinaigrette
    1/2 T Ground Cinnamon
    1 T Erythritol Dissolved in 1/2 c of water

Tips

I always attempt to use organic and natural ingredients whenever possible. I have seen some other "healthy" slaws, but the substitution is an artificial sweetener, which I am strongly against. Erythritol is a plant derived sweetener that has a zero glycemic index and lower carbs. It is not quite as sweet as sugar, but it also does not have the tart aftertaste that can occur with Stevia. However, Stevia is easier to find, so you could use it instead if need be.
TJ = Trader Joe's


Directions

In a large bowl, 4 Quarts or more, toss all veggies, seeds and raisins. Sprinkle cinnamon and toss again. Add 1T of Erythritol to 1/2c of water and mix (may need to heat the water a bit to dissolve the sweetener, then chill water before adding to salad). Add the sweetened water, vinaigrette, and homemade mayo and toss again. Refrigerate for at least 60 minutes for flavors to meld. *no actual cooking time, but no option for "refrigeration time".

Serving Size: makes 20, 2/3c Servings in a Large Bowl (4 Quarts)
