Salad upgrade

March 12, 2018

Does coleslaw bring up images of soggy white cabbage in polystyrene containers? Here, I have given coleslaw a health boost using red cabbage, carrots and spring onions in a dressing of extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar. I have boosted its nutrition content even more with the addition of a handful of dried cranberries and another handful of pumpkin seeds.

 

Pumpkin seeds are a great source of vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3. They also contain phosphorus, magnesium, iron, manganese, zinc and copper, and like other seeds are a healthy source of protein, carbohydrate and fat.

 

I love adding pumpkin seeds to yogurt, porridge and salads. They are also great as a snack, especially with an assortment of other seeds and nuts, as each type confers different benefits.
