I have always been told to try a food ten times before deciding you don’t like it. Thankfully with Brussels sprouts, I did just that!

This vegetarian dish combines the rich flavors of Brussels sprouts with a few of the traditional coleslaw ingredients.

The array of colors present in this dish means there’s a variety of vitamins and minerals. In fact, one serving of the slaw provides 95% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. Vitamin C is important in the growth and repair of tissues, as an antioxidant, and in supporting the immune system.
