Carrot Apple Slaw Recipe

I’ve featured this recipe a couple times in my meal plans so I wanted to do a separate post. I always love finding ways to make recipes simple and healthy. This slaw has no added sugar and is made only of whole ingredients. It’s also super simple to make and very customizable.

Ingredients

  • Napa cabbage
  • Carrots(2-3)
  • Granny Smith Apples(1-2)
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Agave(optional)

Process – chop ingredients

Start by cutting your cabbage. You can cut it whatever size you want. I like to cut it smaller. I like to use Napa cabbage, but you can use whatever kind you prefer. Next, shred your carrots. I like to just shred them into the same container the cut cabbage is in so I can just stop when there’s a good ratio of cabbage to carrot. The napa cabbage I bought was really heavy so I used 2-3 carrots. Typically I only use 2. This ratio is whatever you prefer. Next I like to slice my apples. I use Granny Smith, but you can use any type you prefer. I like to cut the apples in thin slices, but this is based on your preference. Typically one Apple is enough for me, but it’s all about the ratio you prefer. This time I used 2 apples because they were smaller and there was a lot of napa cabbage.

Although this recipe is for Apple Carrot Slaw, you can modify it to add whatever type of fruits or veggies you prefer. You can also add cheese, nuts, dried fruit, or even meat. It’s all about finding the perfect blend of slaw for your taste.

Process – mix dressing

For the dressing I mix an entire individual size container of my favorite plain Greek yogurt with a splash of apple cider vinegar and agave. The agave is completely optional. Once everything is mixed I mix the chopped ingredients with the dressing and it’s complete.

You can use whatever kind of yogurt you prefer. I find plain works best, but flavors like lemon, honey, vanilla, or whatever you prefer would work too. The vinegar type and amount is completely up to you and your tastes as well. The agave is an optional sweetener. If you do decide to use a sweetener you can sub honey or whatever kind of sweetener you prefer. Feel free to also add anything else to the dressing to make it your own.

There you have it. Did you mix it up and take your own spin? Comment below!
