The brilliant colors in this salad are part of the fun – but also part of the-good-for-you in the delicious and easy salad. Shayna and I love recipes like this that are full of “stealth health” ingredients. The cabbage, carrots, berries and nuts are all part of eating better every day. If you want to serve the salad to the family for dinner, try adding a grilled sliced chicken breast to the top. Yum!
