This simple and refreshing coleslaw is a whole food recipe filled with fresh vegetables, vitamins and minerals. As a Fort Collins nutritionist, I always recommend those on a gluten free diet or dairy free diet to focus on eating more fresh vegetables and naturally allergy free foods. This rainbow cabbage coleslaw is a great and filling choice!
