Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a great salad option. What I like about it mostly is that it won't get soggy like romaine, green leaf and other softer lettuces. I can season and put dressing on it, store in the fridge and have a tasty salad immediately when I'm ready to eat. It's very flexible I like to add broccoli, dried fruits,
apples and you can even add cooked bacon! See the recipe below for other add-in suggestions. Be creative and enjoy your REAL FOOD!

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup broccoli stems

  • 2 medium carrots

  • 1 small red (or green) cabbage (or 1 1/2 - 2 cups)

  • juice of 1 whole lemon (or lime)

  • salt

  • pepper (and/or cayenne pepper)

  • 2 TBS vinegar (apple cider vinegar, preferably)

  • 2 TBS olive oil (or homemade mayo)

  • Fruit Add-Ins (Optional Not ALLOWED on Candida Free Diet): I prefer this option in place of adding sugar. Yet, if you can tolerate honey - it would be good too.

  • 1/2 mango

  • 1/2 green apple (only one allowed after 3 weeks on Candida Free Diet)

  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 1/2 cup pineapple

  • Other possible options: sunflower seeds (or other nuts/seeds), cilantro, corn
Instructions:
  1. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and season with spices to your own tastes.

  2. Makes about 2 - 3 cups.
