I love this salad and enjoyed it as a quick meal this week. It was super easy and used one of my absolute favourite processed foods. I know you probably just re-read that and are thinking did she just say the p-word?
Although processed foods are usually higher in fat, sugar and salt. Some (and I mean a very few) processed foods are actually healthy and just make your life a little easier. Like my favourite - shredded cabbage. If you've ever shredded a cabbage before and are anything like me in the kitchen (a bit of a mess) than you know its a messy job.
I add shredded cabbage to salad, sandwiches, stir-fries and soups. And of course you can use it to make coleslaw or just saute it with a little onion and serve as a side. I find having shredded cabbage on hand makes it easy to add to almost anything you make.
