  • ½ medium white cabbage, outer leaves and core removed, finely sliced
  • ½ medium red cabbage, outer leaves and core removed, finely sliced
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and coarsely grated


  • ½ cup Healthy Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper, to season


  • Place the white and red cabbage and carrot in a large mixing bowl, and toss to combine.
  • To make the dressing, place the Defeat Diabetes Healthy Mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Blend to form a creamy dressing.
  • When you are ready to serve, start by pouring two-thirds of the dressing over the cabbage and carrot salad, then mix well. If the coleslaw seems dry, add a little more of the dressing.
  • Eat immediately if you prefer your slaw super crunchy.  It will sit in the fridge, covered, for up to an hour but the cabbage will soften a little.


The vegetables can be shredded a day or two in advance and kept in a resealable bag in the refrigerator. 
You can also make the dressing up to a week in advance. Mix the dressing with the grated vegetables just before serving for maximum crunch. 
For a twist, top with grated cheese and make it a meal!
