For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Coleslaw is a classic side dish to accompany salads, jacket potatoes, BBQs and of course our Low Syn KFC Fakeaway. But, as with many of our favourite things it’s pretty high in syns. So why not make your own?

Syn Free Coleslaw

It couldn’t be simpler. Takes 15 minutes at most, and if you’re a seasoned Slimming Worlder you’ll probably have all the ingredients to hand anyway.

If you’re feeling daring you could even try a few variations. Why not try adding some prawns, Jalapenos, curry powder or some grated reduced fat cheddar (but don’t forget to add on the syns!) They’re all great in a jacket potato!

    1. Hi Charlotte
      It probably wouldn’t freeze very well, but if you click on the number of servings in the recipe you can adjust it to make as much or as little as you want 🙂

  1. Made this to accompany Beef kofta wraps, went down well with my wife, she loves slaw….Thanks for the recipe, keep up the fabulous work..!!

    1. Hi Linda
      A quick google search has raised a couple of possibilities – Fromage blanc or ‘Faisselle’ is apparently an alternative available ‘en France’. I also saw someone mention Carrefour’s own 0% Fromage blanc. Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Jan,

      Could be the type of vegetables you’re using – some cabbages can be quite bitter. Try it again with a different variety 😊

    1. Hi Ann
      The ingredients work well with the quark, balancing the flavours. You could try Greek yogurt or similar instead. 🙂

    1. Hi Lindsay
      You can substitute those ingredients with dairy free alternatives, but you’ll need to check Syn values accordingly.

  2. Pays to follow the recipe and not misread teaspoon as tablespoon, was a bit heavy handed with the mustard powder…. it has a definite kick, tasty though

    1. Hi Gill
      We’ve all done that! I misread the amount of baking powder in a recipe once, adding 2 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons….with predictably disastrous consequences! Glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Great feature that you can click to adjust the servings-I usually do it in my head but this saves me that trouble too-I didn’t even know that was possible-thanks! Will make it for tonight.

  4. I struggled with making this as it seemed to separate and was very liquidy, am I doing something wrong with the vegetables beforehand? should they be dried out first?

    1. Hi Shona
      If you grate the vegetables too finely they can become a bit too mushy as they release their water. Try a slightly coarser grater for the carrot and onion. Hope that helps. 🙂
