Right around this time last summer, I discovered my love for sweet and crunchy bowls of cole slaw and became obsessed. It’s easy, flavorful, and-I think we can all agree- the perfect side, topping, or whole meal on hot summer afternoons…or mornings…or evenings. I made a pretty big batch a few weeks ago, and was rejoicing in every mouth-watering bite. But, then one morning…
You know it’s been rough when the inner Yoncé comes out. It’s the truest sign that I’ll need to whip this up again, sometime soon.
When I learned that the key to a flavorful cole slaw is raisins, I wasn’t surprised. Why? Because, grapes. Praise the grapes. You can find grapes in my salads, in my freezer, and now, in my cole slaw! They’re filled with potassium, which helps to reduce risks of cardiovascular disease and kidney disorders. They also contain resveratrol, a natural polyphenol (meaning it has antioxidants), which helps to increase blood flow to the brain and eliminate brain-damaging plaques. They even help clear uric acid, so they can be eaten as a recovery snack after a workout. Little miracle bubbles, I tell ya!
So, go ahead and check out this Flawless Slaw recipe for the perfect combination of tangy, sweet, and crisp summertime flavors.
