Red Cabbage And Kale Slaw

Yesterday we made a kale slaw that was like something out of the goldilocks story – “just right”. There isn’t anything exotic or complicated about it, it was just tossed together in a few minutes and yet it was so much more than a classic coleslaw.

We ate it together with Sloppy Joe’s made with beluga lentils (did you just get a flashback to the 90’s – that’s right we’re bringing back the sloppy joe’s). And if you are wondering about that recipe, it will be up soon. While this kale slaw goes great with sloppy joe’s it could be paired as a side to virtually any meal.

P.S. make sure to check out our tip below to vary it between vinaigrette style and creamy…
