I’m one of those weird people who actually loves kale. I’d rather eat kale than lettuce in most dishes. And why not? Kale is one of the original superfoods, and with good reason. It’s packed full of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

This kale-slaw is a great way to incorporate it into your family’s meals. It’s a side dish that is bursting with colour, flavour and crunch with just a hint of tanginess from the dressing. Serve it alongside a lovely steak or pop it in some tacos, it’s very versatile. Healthy, fresh and pretty too, it’s bound to become a favourite.
