Side Dish Recipes, Vegetable Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

Need a quick and tasty side dish? Skip the traditional coleslaw and add some zip to your plate with this Creamy Bell Pepper Slaw! A combination of bell peppers and cabbage tossed in a lighter, creamy Greek yogurt dressing really puts this recipe on my top five side dish list. And, not to mention, saves you major calories and cuts back on fat, too! I top this pretty slaw with slivered almonds, but pecans or whatever nuts you have on hand will do. Amp up your next picnic or potluck with this healthy recipe that has a little kick to it!
