Coleslaw is a favorite side dish in my house. It’s fresh and healthy and pairs great with barbecue, and sandwiches. Some even like to put it on their sandwich. Have you ever heard of Primanti Bros? It’s an iconic Pittsburgh restaurant where they put slaw and french fries on the sandwich. Sounds a little different, but don’t knock it until you try it.  This combination really works.

Typically I have used a common green cabbage, but I love the look of this dark beauty. Its purple color is indicative of anthocyanins which are said to provide a wide range of health benefits. The same goes for other fruits and vegetables with dark blue/purple coloring, like blueberries and grapes, but also blue vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and broccoli.
