Coleslaw—the term originating from an 18th century dutch term ‘koolsalade’ meaning cabbage salad, is a great way of using your box ingredients in a healthy and vibrant way. You can experiment with different ingredients and dressings, such as adding sliced apple or pear or using a lighter asian dressing with rice wine vinegar, lime , ginger and oil. You can take out the mayo and just use yoghurt to be even healthier.
