Purple Cabbage and Carrot Slaw – Diabetes Daily

Summer cookouts are back, baby! And I’m celebrating by cooking all the good stuff, like this purple cabbage and carrot slaw.

It’s crunchy, sweet, lightly spicy, and tangy, so it hits all the high points, and it’s just perfect on a hot summer day. Best of all, there’s almost no work required to make it–just prep the veggies, mix, and enjoy!

Now if you know me, you probably already know I’m a fan of bright side dishes. I make some good ones, too, like my broccoli slawpickled cabbage, or corn salsa, and more!

But today, since I’m grilling pork tenderloin, I’ll be making this cabbage slaw to serve with it. The creamy, tangy dressing goes beautifully with a rich bbq sauce, and the crunchy veggies perfectly compliment the tender meat.
