This is my all time favorite coleslaw and the recipe comes from my mother in law!! It is sooo good!
Every time I take this coleslaw to a potluck or party, it never fails to get compliments and I ALWAYS have someone ask if they can have the recipe.
6 cups cabbage, shredded
1 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
1/3 cup red onions, chopped
3/4 cup craisins
1 cup pecans, chopped and toasted
2 apples, chopped
3/4 cup butter milk
3/4 cup light mayonnaise (I have also used half light mayo and half Greek plain yogurt)
4-5 tablespoons sweetener of choice (evaporated cane juice, stevia, sugar, etc)
1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Combine sauce ingredients together in a bowl; mix well. Mix all other ingredients (coleslaw mixture) together in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the coleslaw mixture.
Did you know cabbage helps prevent cancer?!
Cancer prevention tops all other areas of health research with regard to cabbage and its outstanding benefits. More than 475 studies have examined the role of this cruciferous vegetable in cancer prevention (and in some cases, cancer treatment). The uniqueness of cabbage in cancer prevention is due to the three different types of nutrient richness found in this widely enjoyed food. The three types are (1) antioxidant richness, (2) anti-inflammatory richness, and (3) richness in glucosinolates.
