Salads are such a vegetarian cliche, we decided to take a fresh approach to the fresh vegetable on our meat-free Thanksgiving table. Rather than a salad, we went with a slaw. Thinly sliced bell peppers and apples combine with grated carrots and chopped celery for a dish with plenty of sweet crunch. A light orange-balsamic vinaigrette brings it all together.

In a large bowl, combine both bell peppers, the carrots, celery, apple and pomegranate seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange zest and juice, vinegar, salt, olive oil, mustard and red pepper flakes. Pour over the slaw mixture and toss to thoroughly coat.
