1/2 medium head cabbage, shredded (about 4-1/2 cups)
6 large carrots, shredded (about 4-1/2 cups)
8 green onions, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 cup fat-free poppy seed salad dressing
1/3 cup sunflower kernels
1. In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots and green onions. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour. Just before serving, top with sunflower kernels.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling
YIELD: 12 servings (3/4 cup each).
This is the kind of salad you can keep in the fridge for a couple days and it just gets better. I just add the sunflower seeds before serving to keep the crunch.
