Red and Green Cabbage Slaw

Here is a very easy, inexpensive, filling, not to mention - healthy! - recipe.

All measurements are approximate. Adjust to your personal taste.

2 cups chopped red cabbage
2-3 cups chopped green cabbage
2-3 T sour cream
1-2t apple cider vinegar
garlic salt, to taste
ranch salad dressing mix - to taste

Add chopped cabbages to large bowl or container with lid. You can either add the sauce ingredients to the bowl with the cabbage or mix the sour cream, vinegar, garlic salt and ranch powder together in a small separate bowl and then pour over the shredded cabbage. Toss the ingredients together - or just put the lid on and give it a good shake.

Perks of this recipe include:
cost effective - I paid less than $3 for both cabbages and only used about 1/3 of each. I had sour cream, garlic salt and ranch powder on hand.

low calorie - cabbage is low in calories. Using sour cream rather than mayo reduces calories.

tasty - simply adding garlic salt and ranch powder give this a bold flavor without adding calories

filling - cabbage is dense and relatively high in dietary fiber which makes it a very filling food.

Enjoy!
