Here’s a really simple coleslaw recipe that you can serve alongside your burgers and gluten-free buns, take on summer picnics, or simply enjoy alongside your evening meal. Its a healthier version of your regular coleslaw, but it tastes just as good.
Instead of the typical coleslaw ingredients (white vinegar, sugar, mayo), this recipe uses Candida-safe foods like plain yogurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and a little stevia. These combine to create a creamy texture and a refreshing taste that’s just perfect for outdoor dining.
This recipe even includes some probiotic bacteria in the yogurt to promote good gut health. For the most benefit, make sure you buy plain probiotic yogurt or, even better, make your own yogurt at home. And it also includes cabbage, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve gut health.
- 2 cups cabbage, a mix of red and green, thinly sliced
- 1 radish, grated
- ½ tsp. celery seed
- ¼ cup plain yogurt
- 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 packet (or ½ tsp.) powdered stevia
- ¼ tsp. salt
- Pepper to taste
- In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, radish and celery seed, set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, stevia, salt and pepper.
