How to Make Weight Watchers Coleslaw Recipe
It is possible to buy bags of pre-cut coleslaw at the store to save time, but you don't have to. Especially if you are doubling or tripling this Weight Watchers Coleslaw Recipe then you may want to cut the veggies up yourself.
- Shred about half and head of green cabbage and half a head of red cabbage. This equals out to about 2 cups of green cabbage and 1 cup of red cabbage.
- Now shred 3 large carrots or keep shredding until you have 2 cups worth of shredded carrots. Personally…I hate shredding carrots so I will probably buy pre-shredded carrots. 🙁
- Take a small bunch of radishes and shred up about 3/4 of a cup.
- Slice 3 scallions finely.
- Add all the veggies to a big bowl.
- For the dressing you will combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and stir well to combine.
