Red Cabbage and Pepper Slaw

Salads! Refreshing! I enjoy salads not only because they are made with flavourful ingredients but because they can be pretty healthy when not doused with ‘unhealthy’ dressings. This red cabbage and pepper slaw is just right.

Another great thing, salads are pretty easy to make. Just cut up your veggies and prepare your dressing and you are good to go.

Other than the veggies, dressing can make or beak the salad and depending on whether you are looking to go light or heavy on the calories the selection is wide.

If you love creamy dressings, mayonnaise comes in handy and I usually add a touch of ketchup and some freshly ground black pepper. However, if you want something creamy but without all the calories, natural yoghurt dressing works beautifully.

I particularly love olive oil based dressings, so a simple vinaigrette is my go to.
