For this week’s recipe, we are thrilled to feature the Citrus Fruit Slaw With Strawberry Vinaigrette. This is one of three innovative slaw recipes you’ll find in the magazine. These aren’t your standard coleslaws. The refreshing citrus fruits in this salad taste like sunshine, making it the perfect addition to any meal you make this summer. One of the star ingredients is the tangelo, a unique fruit that has a super interesting flavor and set of nutrients. The grapefruit in the slaw is also an excellent source of lycopene, a phytonutrient with potent antioxidant properties to give you the nutrients you need to be active this season.
Here’s the breakdown on this Citrus Fruit Slaw With Strawberry Vinaigrette:
- It’s 100% plant-based, vegan, and gluten-free.
- It’s easy to throw together, and the end result looks sophisticated—perfect for an event.
- This slaw boosts your immunity to keep you and your family healthy.
Loco for Tangelos
You may have never cooked with or even tried a tangelo before. That’s the goal of the recipes in Tracy Anderson Magazine: to introduce you to new foods and fresh ways to expand, diversify, and energize your diet. There’s no time like the present to try new things—you’ll ever know what will become one of your kitchen staples.
“A cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit, these small citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C,” says our Functional Nutritionist Olivia Peláez, MS, FMCHC. “The refreshing citrus fruits in this salad make it the perfect summer addition to any meal.” Vitamin C is not only essential to the functioning of your immune system, but also plays a huge role in your body’s formation of collagen, absorption of iron, and fighting off harmful free radicals.
Watermelon Radish High
Looking for a super special ingredient to elevate your dinner table? Olivia recommends this slaw for one exciting veggie: watermelon radish. “An intensely vibrant-coloured [sic] root vegetable, Watermelon Radish is a fun way to spice up your meals while adding a nutritional boost.” According to an article published by University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, “the fruit, root, and leaves of the watermelon radish provide an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, and other nutrients, particularly when eaten raw.” Everything in this dish is 100% raw, maximizing the nutrient-density of every ingredient.
