Coleslaw & red pepper salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Simple Tuesday calls for a simple recipe, and that’s just what this salad is. Most of the traditional main dishes call for a simple salad as a fresh addition to the meal, either it’s fresh lettuce, lamb’s lettuce, arugula or even coleslaw, tomatoes and any other seasonal vegetable. And what would a salad be without a yummy dressing, vinaigrette is the perfect option for me, I’m not a big fan of those mayo or yogurt-based. I practically prepare salad every day for my family as a part of our dinner and from an early age I’ve enjoyed eating it, which many family friends found surprising since their children wouldn’t even touch vegetables.

My brother used the same methods as my parents did and now his kids are the only kids who like to eat veggies from the soup at the family get-togethers, not to mention that even I got surprised when my 3yo nephew asked for a piece of broccoli in my bowl of soup because he didn’t get one. Now my 1yo niece copies everything from her older brother and even she enjoys lettuce at our Sunday family dinners. Vegetables are an important part of our diet and we should be eating them as much as we can, either fresh in salads or cooked!

    Does it get any prettier than that! This is the first coleslaw recipe that I’ve come across with a balsamic vinaigrette. A perfect side for tacos or mini-sliders.

    I am a big fan of “simple” too. Let the essence and flavor of fresh ingredients shine through. I will definitely be trying this recipe the next time I make a coleslaw with some brisket or pulled pork!
