The tangy zip of these pickled onions brings a bright addition to crunchy slaw. And, the fresh, pungent flavor of fresh herbs is possibly the easiest way to make your dinner more interesting. While chopped herbs are great for salsas, and sauces, whole leaves are preferred for slaws and salads. Enjoy this dish as low-calorie, high-fiber side, for dinner and save the rest for leftovers. Leftovers would be great on a sandwich or topped with a lean protein for a fresh lunch. Bring this 108-calorie dish to your next party or potluck for a healthy side your friends and family will love.
