Healthy fat-free red cabbage coleslaw

Monday, November 5, 2018

This healthy fat-free coleslaw is made with red cabbage, red onion, red apple, beetroot, fat-free natural yoghurt and dijon mustard. It's not just healthy, it's super tasty too!


My friend, Mandy invited me to visit her allotment.  Regular readers will know that I have been dabbling at growing vegetables for a while.  I can honestly say that Mandy’s allotment inspired me to give it a go!

Any time I visit, I am gobsmacked by the range of amazing fruit and veg that she manages to grow.  I came away with a beautiful red cabbage, beetroot and a range of kale leaves.  After making myself a healthy snack of Kale crisps, I decided to make a healthy coleslaw.  I had been introduced to Glenisk fat-free protein yoghurt and decided to try using it instead of mayo (you can use any fat-free thick yoghurt).  I mixed it with Dijon mustard and lemon juice and was delighted with the results

  • 75g raw beetroot, peeled
