Coleslaw with Homemade Dressing (Dairy, Gluten/Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

I have a weakness for creamy dressings which makes coleslaw one of my favourite salads. Cabbage is excellent source of vitamin C, it can alleviate constipation, ulcers, headaches, eczema, infections and can help you lose weight.  I feel this salad is often served more in the summer however with its high source of vitamin C it is great for the winter in order to help keep away those colds.
  • 5 cups shredded white cabbage
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 1 shredded crispy apple or pear (optional)
  • 1/2 cup home-made mayonnaise 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut vinegar or vinegar of choice
  • 2 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large bowl add cabbage, carrot and apple/pear.
  2. In a small dish combine all remaining ingredients and stir until fully combined.
  3. Pour sauce of cabbage, stirring to fully coat.
  4. Cover and let salad sit in fridge for at least an hour to absorb the flavours.


  1. Hi. I'm really happy to find your site and your recipes. My husband and I have some serious health problems. Though we ate well before, I've had to improve and change our diet even further. We are avoiding dairy and most gluten and staying low in sugar too. This can be really hard to achieve, when these are new habits, and I REALLY appreciate your blog and will be trying a lot of these recipes. Thank you!! Molly

    1. Thank you for your kind words Molly, I do hope you are able to get a handle on your healthy problems.
