Going to a barbecue? When it’s too hot to cook, don’t offer to bring brownies or potato salad. You can mix up a bowl of coleslaw in about 15 minutes (less time if you have a food processor) without breaking a sweat.
Coleslaw is typically made with green cabbage, but using red cabbage gives you a boost of potent antioxidants. Red cabbage contains compounds called anthocyanins. These are pigments that give it, and beets and blueberries, their deep colors and make these foods such nutritious choices.
Chop a Granny Smith apple and stir it in for a hint of sweetness and add some vinegar to the dressing for a bit of bite.
1 small red cabbage
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
