Sesame Ginger Cabbage Slaw

This coleslaw is mostly raw, packed full of delicious cancer-fighting nutrients, fiber and protein-packed edamame. It has an orange juice, ginger and vinaigrette dressing that leaves it low-fat and low calorie. It’s also gluten free and mostly raw. This recipe is amazing. I sort of threw everything together one afternoon for a refreshing low-fat coleslaw, and I discovered it to be even better tasting after marinating in the fridge overnight.¬†Enjoy!

      I completely understand being a midwest girl at heart! I’m in Cali now, but Texas will always be ‘my little piece of heaven’ :) That coleslaw sounds super delish – I’m totally making it soon.
