For foods rich in vitamin C, think greens (more on this in future entry). Vitamin C is important for everything from healthy skin, to immune system, to your bones. Below is a slightly different version of coleslaw where you use kale instead of cabbage…to increase the vitamin C and other antioxidant factor!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bunch of kale, center stem removed, cut into shreds
  • 1 bell pepper of your choice, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 cup of virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon of agave (or honey, stevia, etc)
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Stir yogurt, oil, vinegar, and agave together in a bowl (or you can puree them in a blender).
  2. Toss kale, bell pepper and carrots together in salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Add coleslaw mix and toss to coat.
  4. Pour dressing over vegetables just before serving.
