Summer Slaw Salad Details

Howdy ho there, guys! Today I’m sharing another healthy recipe with y’all and it’s perfect for warm weather days. My summer slaw salad is light, refreshing and super crunchy!! Add a protein on top like chicken, fish and/or an egg and you have a complete meal.

Below I’ve listed out the ingredients and steps for making this salad and dressing. The recipe takes about 15 minutes to make, so if you’re on a time crunch, this is the perfect go-to healthy meal! It is also great for lunch leftovers. I make it all the time with the intent of having more throughout the week. Enjoy!


(makes 4 servings)

gluten free


1 head cabbage (savoy or napa) chopped

1 red pepper sliced

3 large carrots sliced 

1/4 cup radishes sliced

1 avocado sliced

1 packet of rice noodles

optional garnish – cilantro


1/4 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed)

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp honey

1 garlic clove, minced

2 pinches of salt

1 pinch of pepper


1. Place chopped cabbage into a large salad bowl and top with sliced red peppers, carrots, radishes and avocado.

2. Whisk all ingredients for dressing together in a small bowl. Note: I squeeze one orange for the dressing rather than using store-bought juice with added sugar. Trust me, it’s much better!

3. Cook rice noodles.

4. While noodles cook, toss salad with dressing.

5. Place 1/4 of cooked rice noodles into the bottom of individual bowl.

6. Serve up 1/4 of salad on top of the rice noodles. Add a few more slices of avocado and sprinkle with cilantro. Enjoy!

Note: add protein to the top of the salad for a complete meal. I like grilled chicken, flank steak and/or an hardboiled egg.
