Salmon Tacos with Red Cabbage Dill Slaw

Salmon supplies lean protein and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids in these fish tacos. Each is topped with a crunchy slaw made with antioxidant-rich red cabbage that is lightly dressed and flavored with fresh dill.

Yield: 4 servings

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups thinly-sliced red cabbage

1 tsp chopped fresh dill

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp red wine vinegar

¼ tsp sugar

¼ tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp salt

Pinch ground black pepper

1 lb. grilled or broiled salmon

8 small corn tortillas, warm

4 tbsp fat-free plain Greek yogurt (optional)

3 green onions, sliced

Directions

Combine the cabbage and dill in a medium bowl. Add the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss well to combine all ingredients.

Use a fork and knife to flake or chop the salmon. Top each tortilla with 2 ounces of salmon. Add an equal amount of the purple cabbage to each taco. Add ½ tablespoon of Greek yogurt (if using) and garnish each with an equal amount of sliced green onions before serving.
