INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Crispity Crunchy Summer Salad
It's summer picnic time and everyone likes creamy Cole slaw. It’s the only way some folks will eat the crunchy, Cruciferous veggie. It‘s rather fatty and can sabotage your waistline and heart health.
One time is not going to destroy your health. But, if you get it from a deli or store it is usually pretty fattening, full of chemical preservatives, and probably months old. I would avoid it like Ebola. Fresh is infinitely best.
