Lemon Dill Slaw

This lemon dill slaw is refreshing, easy to make and perfect for spring and summer!  It combines crunchy cabbage, zucchini, and carrots with pumpkin seeds in a tangy lemon dill dressing.  It is packed with fiber and nutrients and a great way to get those extra veggies in! This is good as a side salad, on a sandwich in place of lettuce, or as something to serve with a protein like grilled tofu.  You can even make it a day ahead of time and use it in lunches as it tastes even better the next day!
