Pretty Pink Slaw

Pretty Pink Slaw
A good recipe doesn’t have to be long listed and complicated—can I get an “amen”? This simple and vibrant slaw has become a go-to for me when it’s my turn to bring the side for the party. Somehow it never fails to wow the crowd—and no one ever knows it takes less than 10 minutes to throw together and consists of only 6 ingredients—until now, because the secret is out. Lets make some pretty pink slaw!
Healthy, Simple, Gluten Free Slaw
The base for this slaw are beets and carrots. I personally believe that raw beets are seriously underrated. They have a unique, crunchy texture, lovely vibrant color.

Over the shredded vegetables is the perfect combination of tangy vinegar and sweet maple syrup. Served with a sprinkle of sesame seeds for added crunch, this slaw’s flavor combination and texture variety is perfectly balanced.

Give this slaw a try- don’t shy away from simplicity- instead, embrace the intrigue in the minimal ingredients.
