First of all, HI! And Welcome to 2015!! I’m sure a lot of you are here to get back on track with healthy eating and to find some new and delicious Weight Watchers Recipes, and I certainly will do my best to deliver. But part of my New Year’s Resolution was to spend less time working and more time enjoying my young children before they are too old to want to play with me. So, I haven’t been posting as much as I used to, but I still plan on posting at least 1 new recipe a week. ;) Just wanted to address that, in case any of you were wondering why I’ve been posting less. With that being said, today’s post is for an amazingly delicious and easy side salad recipe that is so incredibly flavorful, my mouth was watering just making it! My Asian Red Cabbage Salad works great as a side dish, or you can double the serving and top it with some grilled chicken breast for a filling and delicious lunch. Each regular serving is just 3 Points, and it’s crunchy, tangy, salty, and a little sweet….total perfection! This is one of my favorite Weight Watchers Salad Recipes to make whenever I have extra cabbage on hand. Enjoy!
