Healthy Cole Slaw Recipe Without Mayo
Preparation time: 5 minutes
- 1 small cabbage
- 2 carrots
- 1/4 lime
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cut cabbage into 8 parts and discard the core. Peel the carrots.
- In a food processor fitted with a shredder blade, shred the cabbage and the carrots. Food processor makes it really quick and easy to shred veggies – it shreds all the cabbage and carrots for this cole slaw in seconds!
- Squeeze the juice out of the lime into a cup, add olive oil and mix until combined.
- Put shredded cabbage and carrots into a large bowl, and pour oil and lime juice mixture over it. Mix. Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix.
Note: to make it even easier, you can use a store-bought cole-slaw mix instead of shredding your own cabbage and carrots. If using a packaged cole-slaw mix, this recipe will take 2 minutes to make!
