a healthy spring slaw recipe

i already talked about this salad here, but wanted to mention it again because i think it's the perfect salad for springtime . this lemony cabbage-avocado slaw recipe is from whole foods. it's healthy, colorful and i think it would be a great accompaniment to a fish or chicken meal. here's the recipe (i used all the ingredients except the hemp seeds because i couldn't find them in my grocery store, but i'm sure you could use sunflower seeds as a substitute):

Lemony Cabbage-Avocado Slaw

Serves 6

Creamy avocado and bright lemon make great partners in this colorful salad.


6 cups finely shredded purple and green cabbage
1 small red, orange or yellow pepper, chopped
1 ripe avocado, diced
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
3 tablespoons cilantro leaves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl, until avocado is creamy throughout.
