This Summer Slaw with Apples is a perfect side salad easily paired with a chicken breast and approved for all cycles of the 17 Day Diet.
Coleslaw dressing is usually made with mayonnaise, but we’re cutting some of the fat and extra calories by using yogurt!
This recipe comes straight out of my Cycle 1 recipe book called Yummy!.
Enjoy this simple, yet tasty salad for lunch or as a side dish as a part of your Summer BBQ recipe lineup during a hot summer day or really any time of year!
This recipe is pretty basic. You’ll start with a bit of thinly sliced cabbage.
Find a small head of cabbage and use half for this single serving.
This might seem like a lot of cabbage, but it will wilt down a bit once it’s dressed.
If it’s easier, use roughly a half bag of a one pound coleslaw mix (cabbage and carrots).
If you use a pre-package coleslaw mix that already contains carrots, then you can omit the carrot in this recipe.
Next, choose your apple. For me, I like the tangy Granny Smith. It’s a little sweet, but not too sweet.
A honey crisp apple would be tasty because of its sweetness and extra crunchy texture!
Choose a large carrot so you get in your fiber!
You can grate or thinly slice your carrot, depending on how much crunch you want in your salad.
For your dressing, you’ll use plain yogurt, apple cider vinegar, a bit of sweetener if you need it along with salt and pepper.
If you want a bit of an extra bite, add in a teaspoon on Dijon mustard!
