Tyler Sullivan

This salad recipe is fast, fresh, and full of crunch and flavor, without being full of calories. With a few simple ingredients and endless room to spruce it up, it's a perfect weeknight, last-minute, or anytime meal, side, or starter.

Notes

Note: Amounts of olive oil and balsamic can be adjusted to taste, but I like a barely dressed salad, with just enough flavor and without soggy leaves.

Avocado and walnuts are great additions to this salad, to make a heartier meal!

Coleslaw Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Coleslaw Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
