    A very good alternative recipe of the classic coleslaw salad!
    I would suggest:
    – 2 or 3 tablespoons of walnuts because they are very tasty and a good source of vegetal ω-3 fatty acids.
    – 1/2 cup carrot shredded for a more colorful salad and of course more vitamin A.
    Keep on the good work and waiting for more recipes like this one!
