Healthy Nutty Coleslaw - Pinterest Success {29}

 

 

 

I just love finding recipes that are a healthier version of a popular dish that you might find at every pot luck. This recipe is a low sugar and low sodium re mix of the ramen noodle coleslaw that is so yummy, but so unhealthy. All the good things are still included - the nutty sunflower seeds and the almond slices, crunchy celery and green onions, but the ramen noodles filled with sodium are missing. It is definitely the flavorful dressing that makes this coleslaw special and since I used light mayonnaise and Splenda, I lightened things up even more.

The pin for the recipe can be found here, and this was most definitely a Pinterest success and one I will be making often. Especially with cookout and picnic season right around the corner. This coleslaw will be perfect to make for impromptu summer dinners and would be good with all types of meats that you put on the grill; from simple burgers to chicken to pork tenderloin. I am so happy to have another heathy salad in my summer recipe repertoire.

Happy Tuesday!

  2. Vicki -- that is my recipe creation and I am so glad you enjoyed it!! It fits perfectly into my low-carb lifestyle and with the modification you made, would be perfect for a low-fat one too.

    Enjoy!

    Blessings!
