Rainbow Vegetable Slaw

This Rainbow Vegetable Slaw is sure to not disappoint all my veggie and salad lovers out there, it’s loaded with raw crunchy veggies and topped with a creamy sauce made from all whole food ingredients (vegan friendly). I’ve always had a thing for salads, seriously, ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved fresh big bowls of salads. Anything where I can mix several flavors and textures from vegetables is always a win in my book. I especially love slaws nowadays and in the spring and summer months for a quick side dish or meal. Rainbow Vegetable Slaw is also perfect to bring with you to work, school, picnics or parties to serve all your lovely friends and family.

I have fantastic memories of my mother cutting up fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and squashes from our little garden and putting them into salads, it was always a rainbow of beautiful vegetables. One of those vegetables being red cabbage, which I particularly didn’t like growing up, but nowadays I can’t picture a salad bowl (especially slaw) without it! Slaws inheriting are a fantastic concept for a salad, crunchy julienned vegetables, mostly cabbage with a sauce combining it all together for a delicious crunchy salad.

When I first shared one of my Nourish Bowls on Instagram, it became one of my most popular posts for good reason… it’s easy and so delicious! The root of the Nourish Bowl is choosing nutrient dense veggies, fruits/carbohydrates, healthy fats, and quality proteins to make a filling meal in a bowl.

Introducing the Fall Harvest Superfood Salad. This salad is hearty enough to be an entree with all of these great components such as healthy fats, fiber, protein, and carbohydrates; but also perfect as a side dish alongside a meal.

Why superfood? The word “superfood” has received attention the past five years or so with exotic and unfamiliar foods such as goji berries, raw cacao nibs, dragon fruit, noni juice and much more, hitting the mainstream. Also let’s not forget to mention listed in every major magazine with the title “must have foods to eat of 2013″ “get slim with these superfoods”, and so on. So what makes a food super? In my book ALL raw/fresh fruits and vegetables are super foods in their own way. That’s right, I don’t discriminate any fruit or vegetable as being less super than another as they all have amazing health benefits. Although…they’re some out there who should get an A+ in the nutrient density department. One of them being goji berries…and kale…and pumpkin seeds…and walnuts…and quinoa…and red onion… okay many ingredients in this recipe! Hence why I call this salad the Fall Harvest Superfood Salad.

Do you remember how I said I really like saying the word baba ghanoush, well tabbouleh (tuh-boo-luh or sometimes pronounced tuh-bul-lay in the US) is another word that I add into my “fun to say word” book. What is tabbouleh? Traditional tabbouleh contains bulgar wheat (a gluten containing grain), onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, scallions, and mint. This dish is very popular among the Middle Eastern regions and of course, the dish and ingredients vary among regions/cultures. It’s served chilled or room temperature often in many ways (i.e. entree, side, “condiment”). A fun fact about tabbouleh: it holds a place in the Guinness Book of World Records!
