Winter Veggie Coleslaw

This winter veggie coleslaw combines the beautiful, healthy fruits and vegetables available during cooler months into a craveable side dish the whole family will love.


I’m thrilled to bring you this lovely winter veggie coleslaw today! I LOVE coleslaw. I love that they’re a dense but flavorful source of healthy vegetables! Missing the bright and light coleslaw of the summertime, I decided to whip up a version that features a deep, colorful winter bounty. With dinosaur kale (the kind that is not curly) and purple cabbage as the base, this coleslaw is accent with pretty ribbons of carrots. To make these carrot ribbons, you simply use your vegetable peeler! Just peel the carrot and then keep peeling until the carrot is mostly gone. The dressing has a bright citrus flavor with a creamy texture. If you love spicy foods, I recommend adding a tablespoon of sriracha!


After dressing the simple slaw base, this side dish gets a gorgeous Winter makeover complements of some decadent crushed cashews and generous sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.

With this season of holiday parties upon us, this slaw is a great candidate to make in advance! Just like regular coleslaw, I find that it gets even better after it sits for a bit.


I hope you enjoy and I can’t wait to see how you make this slaw your own! Remember that if you make any Fed & Fit dishes from my blog or my book, be sure to tag me on Instagram in the actual photo! I don’t want to miss a bite.

    Just curious if it’s fine to use curly kale if you can’t find the dinosaur kale?
