Kale & Peanut Coleslaw (Video)

Odd as it may be, I adore coleslaw.

I love traditional coleslaw as much as coleslaw with vinaigrette, spices, or pickled.

This particular recipe is my attempt at a coleslaw served at one of my favorite restaurants, Banderas.

It’s crunchy, bright, hearty, light, salty, and extremely nutritious.  I mean, it haskale in it!  Isn’t that suppose to be like the healthiest food on the planet?

This would be a great side dish of for just about any type of protein.

SO check out the video and let me know your thoughts.  Enjoy!
