Basic Coleslaw

About three months ago, my doctor told me two important things.
1. To make a salad the largest part of my lunch and dinner. In fact, she recommended that it should form about half my meal
2. I should chew on my meals. Till then, I used to gobble up my food and any meal was over in about 5 minutes. I have now trained myself to chew and stretch the meal to about 20 minutes.
As a result of this, my blood sugar immediately fell to normal limits. Was I delighted?
So, the relentless search for salad recipes became an integral part of my evenings. It was on one of these expeditions that I came across this simple recipe from the iconic late Tarla Dalal. There was some work in customising the recipe to WFPB conformity. The end result was more than just pleasing!
