Tangy Broccoli and Cabbage Slaw

20 March 2017

This very quick and easy salad recipe is the most perfect side dish for Sunday barbecues, and also makes for a delicious work lunch solution when you're short on meal prep time. Low in carbs, and rich in antioxidants, this is the perfect healthy and nutrient rich choice, especially if you feel like giving your salads an upgrade in taste ans texture! I add sesame seeds for extra crunch. You can also include raw almonds, cashews or sunflower seeds to give your slaw a protein boost.

Serves up to 4 | Ready in 10 mins


½ broccoli head – roughly chopped

¼ green cabbage – finely chopped

3 large carrots – skins removed and grated

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

4 tbsp. sugar free, low carb mayonnaise (I use Carb smart mayo, available at Dischem and Food Lovers stores)

Himalayan salt and black pepper to taste
