This is my take on the Trader Joe's Rainbow Slaw with Honey Herb Vinaigrette. To keep it seasonal, I substituted yellow bell peppers for the yellow corn found in the Trader Joe's version. I also omitted the mustard greens, and broccoli and created my own interpretation of the dressing. Since Trader Joe's recently discontinued their Rainbow Slaw, I wanted to try making this version at home to get my fix of this crunchy delight. It does involve quite a bit of chopping, but just one bite reveals that it is well worth the effort that goes into it.
On it's own the diet direction of this salad is Cleansing, but it can easily be made more Balancing by adding grilled chicken. For a more Building diet add avocado and/or walnuts as well.
