Detox slaw

By • March 2, 2013 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: Healthy salad for guilt free indulgence. Adapted from mynewroots. I love this slaw because it's dressing maintains the creaminess without having any of those ingredients. A dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and tahini. This is perfect for those days when you have leftover cabbage. It makes a lot and costs almost nothing.ami@naivecookcooks
