Healthy Holiday Side: Kale Broccoli Slaw | Family Economics


Alison Lewis 


Since my kids actually like kale and broccoli, I combined the two to make this Kale Broccoli Slaw, perfect for a healthy side dish. This healthy side dish is fabulous with dried cranberries, almonds and the tangy and sweet Greek yogurt dressing.

Broccoli slaw has only 25 calories per servings and 120 percent of daily needs of Vitamin C. Kale is a powerhouse of nutrition with so many health benefits. My kids and I also like this side dish for a quick, healthy lunch (on top of arugula). Be sure to store in a Ziploc® Brand Container to keep up to three days.
