There’s nothing like warm weather to inspire the “coleslaw” in us. This one is a yummy blend of cabbages, radishes, carrots and orange. And the perfect partner to zesty orange flavor? Basil.
Basil has a lot of “bang for your buck”. It’s full of anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial compounds. The herb is very low in calories and contains no cholesterol. Try it in this recipe, and you’ll discover it adds lots of flavor to more than just pesto or caprese salad.
Use this slaw as a side, topping slices of avocado in a pita or serve it as a bed for grilled white fish for dinner tonight – Yum!
