  • Squeeze out any extra liquid from the produce after shredding them to keep everything nice and crisp.
  • If you are making this slaw ahead of time, don’t mix the ingredients. Shred the produce and set it aside in the fridge. You can make the dressing separately as well and mix everything together just before serving.
