Confetti Slaw

My husband wanted to make a fun veggie side dish using whatever we had in the fridge. It was proclaimed that this side dish would be a slaw of some sort, without cabbage since we had none…and tasty somehow. Once we got to the stage where I was mixing and tasting the dressing we realized it was kind of a pretty slaw with all its colours so it was named confetti slaw. We had this as a side with some crab cakes I had made and it was nummy! So low calorie and so filling. Just plain can’t go wrong there.

  • 6 apples
  • 4 small carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 tbl lemon juice
  • 4 tbl light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp mrs. dash original
  • 2 tsp horseradish dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Core the apples. Slice the apples, carrots and celery into matchsticks. My husband went with chunky matchsticks but thinner ones would be tasty too.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients. Combine thoroughly and allow to sit atleast 20 minutes. The longer it sits the better the flavours combine.

Makes 6 servings. Each serving contains 111 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 3.8 grams of fibre. I don’t think this would keep very well so its best eaten the day of. If you need less for your dinner this recipe will cut in half to create 3 servings very easily. Enjoy!
