Healthy Super Slaw

Healthy Super Slaw 5

Serves 6+ (easily halved)

It’s no secret that I’m learning to love salad and learning to make my salads more scintillating, but I do love some of the old classics. I remember when I was a kid how I used to love shop bought coleslaw, even though I l probably loved the taste of all the added flavours and preservatives more than the veggies themselves.

This slaw is super easy and super healthy because it’s a mayonnaise free dressing, great for those on an egg free or weight watching kind of diet. The apple brings some sweet and the onion adds the savoury and the dressing tastes deliciously creamy and flavourful, making a super light but super tasty salad that will feed a crowd.

I used regular white cabbage, but you can use any cabbage variety you like – red, savoy, even wombok will work. After trimming the cabbage, cut it into manageable-size wedges to make shredding/cutting it finely a lot easier. I used the grating/slicing blade on my food processor, and the one blade did it all in a matter of minutes!

Are you learning to love salad too?

    Yummy ! Have just joined Weight Watchers and I love coleslaw as you can have it with almost anything plus the veggies are ‘free’. The dressing is a great flavour. I made loads so did not feel guilty about adding some sultanas and a teaspoon of half spoon sugar (half sugar and half sweetener) to give it that little sweetness that I prefer. But if you like savoury, then Sam’s recipe is great. Beats anything you can buy from the supermarket and takes only a few minutes to make.
