To make this delicious creamy poppy seed slaw you’ll need one bowl for the shredded vegetables, one bowl for the dressing, and your cabbage shredder – that’s it! In this recipe we use a Professional Cabbage Shredder for the green and purple cabbage, and the Compact Cabbage Shredder for the carrot, peppers, onion, and peppers. As always, don’t forget to wear your protective, cut resistant glove as the blades on all of our shredder products are incredibly sharp.
Simply shred your vegetables and toss them together in one bowl, and after combining the ingredients to the creamy dill and poppy seed dressing combine it all and toss once more.

Health benefits to this recipe

Poppy seeds add color and crunch to baked goods, but you'll also gain nutrients, even from the amount sprinkled on top of a roll. They contain some niacin and folate, but poppy seeds are a better source of minerals. Just 1 teaspoon provides measurable amounts of calcium, iron and zinc.
Dill weed is a good source of calcium, manganese and iron, and as an antioxidant food, its flavonoids provide anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties that give it a whole host of incredible health benefits.
