Vegetable Slaw with Honey-Lemon Dressing

September 24, 2009

Carrots and broccoli slaw make this a refreshing dish to complement any meal. The toasted walnuts gives this salad an earthy flavor with amazing textures to balance out the sweetness of the dressing. For a quick and healthy side, make a couple portions of this to eat for the rest of the week. You can easily combine this slaw with some protein for a satisfying lunch, or top it on your usual sandwich for some extra crunch. I usually don’t care for carrots, but when combined with this amazing dressing, I’ll be happy to eat my carrots.
