Spring Veggie Slaw

This month's Recipe Redux theme is "The First Shoots of Spring," which refers not to the beautiful flowers popping up in your garden beds, but the lovely vegetables that come this time of year. We decided to make a veggie salad with a citrus dressing. Contrary to popular belief, salad dressings can be healthy!

Don't citrus and fresh snap peas just sound like spring? We thought so. The colors and freshness of these veggies are sure you get you feeling healthy and chipper.

Look at that lovely spring rainbow!


1/4 C orange
2 Tbsp rice milk
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lime juice
1 T chia

1/4 purple onion
1/2 zucchini
5 radishes
7-8 baby carrots
2 Roma tomatoes
1/2 English cucumber
3 green onions
7-8 snap peas
pumpkin or sunflower seeds (optional)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Mix dressing ingredients. Put in fridge while preparing the vegetables to let thicken. The Chia works as the thickening agent in the dressing. :)

2. Chop all salad ingredients into bit-sized pieces.

3. Mix salad and dressing together. Serve.

  1. The colors are gorgeous! Even just the simple cut up veggies on the plate look delish.
