Root Vegetable Coleslaw

No ratings yet

An alternative to regular coleslaw! Add some fresh earthy crunch to your summer BBQ!

Coleslaw is the ultimate BBQ side dish, but it’s often made with unhealthy ingredients. Most store-bought coleslaw has added sugar, and all coleslaw recipes have tons of mayonnaise. We want you to be able to enjoy your slaw without worrying about its impact on your waistline. This root vegetable coleslaw is the clean-eating coleslaw you’ve been waiting for. It’s made with Greek yogurt and clean mayo instead of mayonnaise, and honey instead of refined sugar. The veggies add an extra nutritional punch. Jicama, sweet potatoes, carrots, and parsnips are all great sources of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This healthy, tasty side dish will shine at your summer parties, and will quickly become a family favorite.
