This super fresh and colorful side is a perfect addition to taco night! With pops of color from the red bell pepper, orange carrots, green kale, cilantro, jalapeño, green onions, and purple cabbage, this slaw would be a great accompaniment to these Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos (all vegetarian!).
