Apple Crunch Slaw with Almond Butter Dressing… yep, let’s talk legit fall food over here. We love the crunch in this plant-based salad from all the shredded veggies, apples, and sunflower seeds.
I’m all about chopped salads or “slaw” in this case because sometimes just the way you prep your veggies can make a huge difference in their craveability.
If you’re asking me my opinion, chopped salads and slaw get my vote any day. Maybe it’s the dressing to veggie ratio or tenderness that the extra chopping lends to veggies, or just the fun shape, but whatever the case may be that makes chopped salads and slaw superior, I’m game.
Because who couldn’t use some more tasty veggie recipes in their life?
