Rainbow Slaw

This is an old recipe of mine that I decided to revisit, and it was actually my 3-year-old, who came up with the final addition to it: beets. I love just how simple this is. There's no dressing, sauce, or seasoning. Each vegetable (or fruit) speaks for itself, and each plays a role in making the rainbow. So switch up that same old salad, and get your veggies in with this rainbow slaw. And make it your own. If you don't like an ingredient, use a less. If you really like something, use more. Make whatever ratio you like it. And enjoy the surprising different flavor combination in every bite.
