Healthy Coleslaw

I like to add healthy coleslaw to (lettuce wrap) sandwiches for added bulk (ex: turkey or roast beef + coleslaw rolled in a romaine lettuce leaf), but it can also be eaten as a stand alone side dish.

This easy coleslaw recipe will help you add veggies and fruit to your diet in a colorful, creative way!


  • 3 raw beets, peeled and shredded (3 cups)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, shredded (1 cup)
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. agave nectar or 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. minced canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Toss together beets, apple, and green onions in bowl.
  2. Blend vinegar, oil, mustard, agave nectar, garlic, chipotle chile, and salt in food processor until smooth. Add to beet mixture, and toss to coat.
