This Healthy Kale Cabbage Slaw is THAT slaw. The slaw that goes well with everything: your Crispy Cauliflower Tacos, your Quinoa Cauliflower Burgers, your spring rolls, and even with your enchiladas. I’ve made this so many times and I’m actually resisting the temptation to make it again right now since the ingredients are in my fridge and it takes just 5 minutes. Best part? NO mayo, no unrefined ingredients, no complicated process. You have to make this.

I’ve never really been a huge coleslaw fan. It’s too creamy, too clawing, and I just feel like every bite is a million calories. Not the worth-it calories like amazing brownies, but the kind that you’re regretting with each bite. So, I’ve kind of avoided it, until now. I first made this healthy kale cabbage slaw when I made my Crispy Cauliflower Tacos (please go make this tonight) and the Mr. and I knew that it would continue to be a staple in our household.

I had kale, purple cabbage and carrots in my fridge (so many carrots) and chose them mainly because of the gorgeous bright colours. What I didn’t know is how delicious it would taste. It’s the perfect amount of tang balanced with the little bit of cane sugar. The right amount of crunch and depth of flavour and has no mayo, unlike your regular slaw. Personally, I love this way more than regular coleslaw, especially the vinaigrette-ness of it.

Put it on ALL the things, then EAT all the things.

Fun nutritional facts?

Lots of beta carotene from the carrots, incredible amounts of Vitamin A and K from the kale, and endless amounts of benefit from the apple cider vinegar (heart healthy, weight loss promoting, blood sugar levels stabilizing). You can enjoy all your favourite slaw meals in a new, healthy way without losing ANY of the flavours. Win, win.
