Paleo Citrus Summer Slaw

Property of

Coleslaw is a traditional side dish for most summer parties. Unfortunately, coleslaw is often made with ingredients that may not fit your ideal definition of healthy and if you have an egg allergy it’s a big no-no. Here is a great alternative to the traditional coleslaw.


2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
juice of 2 oranges
5 oz pre-cut cabbage (this is often packaged as a coleslaw mix)
1 apple, sliced into thin strips
1 pear, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup dried cranberries, sweetened with apple juice
1 package raspberries


In a large bowl whisk honey, balsamic and orange juice until throughly incorporated.
Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix together.
Let sit for 30 minutes, then serve at room temperature or chilled.

I hope you enjoy this fantastic summer side dish!
