This Low Carb Red Cabbage, Mint, and Granny Smith Apple Slaw is not only gorgeous, it’s also cheap, easy, super healthy for you, and tastes amazing!



  • 2 cups raw Granny Smith apples, chopped or cut into matchsticks
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 8 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (any light salad oil will work)
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar substitute (honey for Paleo)


  1. Cut your apples first and toss them with the lemon juice to prevent browning. Combine the apples, cabbage, and fresh mint in a large serving bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and sweetener. Pour the dressing over the slaw and toss well to coat.
  2. This recipe will keep for 3 or 4 days in the fridge, but looks prettiest in the first hour or two, before the red color seeps into everything. So if you’re bringing it to a party or serving it to guests, don’t dress it until right before serving.
