South African Style Coleslaw


In South Africa, coleslaw is a favorite summer side-dish, and I haven’t forgotten my heritage!

Thankfully, my Mom has a delicious coleslaw recipe that has become a staple at summer BBQs.

Her recipe makes a side salad for 4 to 6 people and it’s as easy as…


1/3 of a small red cabbage, shredded
1 sweet red apple, diced into small pieces
1 medium carrot, grated
1 small white onion, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup of raisins

1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
4 heaped tablespoons of Paleo mayonnaise (more if you like a very creamy dressing)


In a medium bowl, layer the cabbage, apple, carrot and onion, then add the raisins.
Toss gently to mix the salad.
In a separate small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together well.
Add the dressing mixture to the salad bowl and toss until thoroughly mixed.
Refrigerate and enjoy chilled when serving.
I hope you enjoy my Mom’s recipe as much as I do!

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!
