This is a great side dish with vegetarian barbecue, a hearty soup or stew, or even a main dish with some good, whole grain bread, biscuits or crackers.
When you first start eating raw vegetables - especially cruciferous, e.g., broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower - be sure to start slow. These fiber-packed veggies are full of goodness, but if you're not careful they'll leave you full of gas! They can also cause some gastric distress if you over do it or your system isn't used to them. So, start slow, build it up, and enjoy the goodness of great greens!

The Ingredients and Recipe

You'll Need:

• 12 oz. bag of broccoli slaw

• 2-3 oz. baby kale, finely chopped

• 12 oz. bag frozen, shelled edamame

• 2 green onions, thinly sliced

• 1/4 C each dried cherries, cranberries, sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds

• 1/4 C olive oil

• 1/4 C champagne vinegar

Do This:

1. Cook the edamame according to package directions and set aside to cool.

2. Empty the broccoli slaw into a large bowl.

3. Chop the kale (I process it for a few seconds in a food processor.) Add chopped kale to bowl.

4. Cut the bottoms and tips off the onions, discard any tough bits, and thinly slice. Add to bowl.

5. Add the dried fruit and nuts, and the cooled edamame.

6. Whisk together the oil and vinegar in a small bowl and add to the salad slaw.

7. Toss lightly to coat the salad slaw with dressing and enjoy!

Great Green Salad Slaw Notes

• You can use a cabbage-based coleslaw mix for this recipe as well - I used the broccoli slaw because that's what was available in the store.

• Sunflower seeds and walnuts would also work well with this recipe.

• You can try different flavors of vinegar to change this up - apple cider and balsamic would work well.

• If the dish feels a little bland, you can always season it will a little salt and pepper - or try celery salt for additional flavor.
