Here is a refreshing take on coleslaw. The sweetness of the carrots and apples pair wonderfully with the zingy flavour of the lime juice in the slaw. I love to serve this along side braised pork or chicken. This slaw will certainly help to lighten any heavy meal that you're serving. It also looks very bright and colourful on the plate too. My husband loved this slaw recipe so here I am sharing it with you all, enjoy!

Serves 2-3 (as a side)


  • 2 cups carrots, sliced into thin matchsticks (or use pre-shredded carrots in a package)
  • 1 small golden delicious apple or granny smith apple, sliced into thin matchsticks
  • half a small red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tsps liquid honey
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil
  • small handful of currants (optional)

1. In a medium sized bowl, add in the sliced carrots, apples, red onion and the chopped parsley. Using clean hands or a pair of tongs, gently mix it altogether to combine.

2. In the same bowl, add in 3 tablespoons of light mayo, juice of one lime, 2 teaspoons of liquid honey, and one tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste. Tip: If the lime you're using is not as juicy add the juice of another half a lime.

3. Using tongs, gently toss all of the ingredients together until just combined. Then place a saran wrap over the bowl and place it into the fridge for a good hour before serving. Serve along side braised or grilled chicken, pork, or fish.
