I love coleslaw.  Cabbage is uber healthy and packed full of fiber and nutrients.  Great way to fill up but without all the extra calories and carbs.

Green Apple & Cabbage Slaw

Makes 6 servings (1 1/2 cups each)

Ingredients

1 granny smith apple, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 small red cabbage, sliced fine *See NOTE

Dressing:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
2-3 packets Krisda stevia
1 Tbsp canola oil (or other light oil)
2 tsp dijon mustard
Pepper, to taste

*NOTE: If your short on time, you could also use the pre-packaged coleslaw mix that contains green/red cabbage and carrots.

Directions

Place apple, green onion and cabbage into a salad bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over coleslaw. Toss and serve!

    Sounds great (again)! But still a couple of questions from my side. How do you preserve the rest of the cabbage (do you freeze it?) and how long can you store this salad in the fridge. I’m the only one here eating these kind of things 😉

      Red cabbage lasts cut in the fridge for a really long time. I think I’ve had half a head of cabbage in there for close to a month! The salad itself should last for about 5 days in the fridge, but I’m not exactly sure as mine has been gone before that 😉
