You know what the most important thing about food is to me? Besides delicious flavor, of course. I think that food should look good. Now, I don’t mean the kind of dishes you get in a fine-dining restaurant, although I do think they’re amazing. But I want every dish I make to look delicious, and not only smell and taste great. There’s a very easy trick that will immediately make your everyday dishes look pretty. Want to know what it is? Just add plenty of color!
I think it has actually been scientifically proven that colorful meals don’t just look better – they taste better and are, overall, healthier than less colorful dishes. When it comes to coleslaw I think any kind of cabbage is good for you, but you just can’t beat the beautiful purple hue of red cabbage, can you?
This red cabbage coleslaw recipe from Melanie Cooks is a very simple, yet super tasty one. It is a great basic coleslaw that complements any meal, and you can add some of your favorite ingredients to amp it up even more. Try chopping in some red and yellow bell peppers – I always add those and they make it even more colorful!

Quick Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, just cut very thin slices to make “shredded” cabbage.
