A shredded salad is a super way to create a one-platter meal full of veggies and color. When you toss up this salad, you’ll have rave reviews at dinner, and then you can tuck any leftovers in a pita pocket for lunch tomorrow.

This salad’s easy dressing is made with one of our favorite ways to bring the umami, (the flavor of richness), to many recipes – smoked paprika! Smoked paprika is full of Vitamin A and iron. It is made by smoking peppers over oak wood which produces a complex flavor that ranges in heat-level from sweet and mild to hot. Enjoy this easy crunchy salad with rich flavor from smoked paprika!
