Pack these tacos as a wrap for lunchboxes, or turn the filling into rice paper rolls which are great for active kids who eat on the run, and a gluten free option packed full of flavour.
The rainbow slaw contains an abundance of nutrients such as immune boosting vitamins A, C and E, folate, omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium and fibre. The slaw can be made in bulk at the start of the week to cover a couple of lunches and dinners as it will keep well, without dressing, in an airtight container.
The zesty avocado dressing is a good source of healthy healthy fats and fibre, and also helps to hold the slaw together in the wrap making it easier to eat.

Variations & Substitutions
- The slaw can be made in bulk at the start of the week to cover a couple of lunches and dinners as it will keep well, without dressing, in an airtight container.
- Rather than making the dressing, simply slice up some avocado to add to the wraps.
- Alternate with haloumi, leftover chicken or meat for lunch variation without a heap of recipes and meal prep.
Try wrapping the haloumi, slaw and dressing in a sheet of rice paper that has been run under a tap to soften to make leftovers easier in lunchboxes.
For a dairy free or vegan option, swap the haloumi for tempeh.
