Roasted Slaw with Roasted Garlic Lemon Dressing – Charred bits of green cabbage and sweet corn harmonize in this crispy salad with a zesty roasted garlic and lemon dressing!
Full Of Flavor And Texture
If you are looking for a side dish or salad that orchestrates a combination of textures and flavors into every balanced bite, then this recipe is for you. The green cabbage and corn are lightly roasted to a tender crisp texture that helps to preserve the nutrients while adding the delicious flavor dimension of nutty charred bits. Red cabbage and carrots remain uncooked, providing a crunchy texture and a full dose of all they have to offer nutritionally.

Bringing home the nutrition-this slaw is a low carb, high fiber dish, and delivers a generous dose of vitamin C and K (thanks to the cabbage) along with antioxidants, healthy fats and numerous other nutrients. Serve it warm or chilled, but definitely serve it!!

Some notes for you —
Cook Time: Does not include time for roasting garlic.
Roasting Garlic: For a process photo see my post on Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Spread.
Dressing: I use avocado oil for the dressing because I like the buttery flavor that it adds, but olive oil could be substituted.
Selecting Cabbage: Choose heads that are tight and seem heavy for their size.
