Slaw is fresh take on the Thanksgiving veg

  • Follow Food

Salads are such a vegetarian cliche, we decided to take a fresh approach to the fresh vegetable on our meat-free Thanksgiving table. Rather than a salad, we went with a slaw. Thinly sliced bell peppers and apples combine with grated carrots and chopped celery for a dish with plenty of sweet crunch. A light orange-balsamic vinaigrette brings it all together.
