Serves: 6
This colorful and crunchy slaw combines massaged kale with both green and red cabbage. It goes with just about every kind of meal, and you can vary it each time.
  • 3 to 4 kale leaves (curly green or lacinato)
  • 8 to 10 baby carrots, quartered lengthwise
  • 2 cups thinly shredded green cabbage
  • 2 cups thinly shredded red cabbage
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
  • ½ cup natural bottled or homemade dressing of your choice (see Note), or as needed to moisten
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Toasted sunflower or pumpkin seeds for topping, as desired
  1. Strip the kale leaves off the stems. If you'd like, you can slice the stems super-thin, otherwise discard. Slice the kale leaves thinly.
  2. Rub a small amount of olive oil in your palms and massage the kale leaves for 30 to 45 seconds, or until softened and bright green.
  3. Combine the massaged kale (and the stems, if using) and the the ingredients except the last two in a serving container.
  4. Stir together, then season with salt and pepper. Scatter the seeds over the top and serve.
