Seaweed Slaw

Sea vegetables such as seaweed are always nutrient-dense and help to provide many vitamins and minerals that are often depleted from our soil, and the nori sheets in this recipe bring an exciting twist to the coleslaw theme.  

The mayonnaise provides the majority of the energy in this recipe while the sesame seeds provide a range of minerals including copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc.  Cabbage contains tons of folate, vitamin C and vitamin K while the carrots lift vitamin A.
