Kale Slaw with Thai Peanut Dressing


This is a quick and healthy slaw that incorporates my favorite cruciferous veggie: kale. Combined with cabbage, carrots and a thick peanut dressing, this is a fresh and filling summer salad. Try it for a lighter side at your next cookout or top with some grilled chicken or shrimp for a light dinner.
