Purple Slaw Recipe

BALTIMORE (January 20, 2012) – In honor of the Ravens upcoming appearance in the AFC Championship game Sunday, ChopChop Maryland has released a special edition game day recipe for Purple Slaw. Purple Slaw is a healthy cole slaw recipe featuring red cabbage, onions and carrots. Each serving contains just 111 calories and is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamins A and C.

ChopChop Maryland, launched by First Lady Katie O’Malley in October, promotes healthy eating with monthly family-friendly recipes that feature local, seasonal and nutritional ingredients. The program, a partnership with ChopChop Magazine, released this special edition game day recipe to help Marylanders cheer on the Ravens.

“It’s great that we are able to partner with ChopChop Magazine to encourage Maryland families to enjoy Purple Slaw in honor of our Baltimore Ravens,” said First Lady Katie O’Malley. “Fans of all ages can eat healthy as we celebrate a Ravens’ win on Sunday.”

“I’m looking forward to enjoying Purple Slaw with my family while watching the Ravens' victory,” said Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, Secretary of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. “I bet New England fans secretly wish they could have some.”
