There’s nothing like warm weather to inspire the “coleslaw” in us! This one is a yummy blend of cabbages, carrots, orange and honey. Use this slaw as a side, topping slices of avocado in a pita or serve it up as a bed for a piece of grilled white fish for dinner tonight,
The perfect partner to zesty orange is basil. Basil has a lot of “bang for your buck”. It is chock full of anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial compounds. The easy-to-find herb is very low in calories and contains no cholesterol. Basil – lots of flavor without any downside!
