This Coleslaw recipe is lower in calories, Syns and Points than the full fat version, but still has all the delicious flavour and texture you love!
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, barbecues and of course our Low Syn KFC Fakeaway. But, as with many of our favourite things it’s pretty high in calories, Syns and Points. So why not make your own?
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. It takes 15 minutes at most, and you may have all the ingredients to hand!
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 calories, Syns or Points!) These variations are great on a jacket potato!
This recipe makes a big batch of coleslaw, perfect for buffets and barbecues. If you want to make less you can alter the number of servings on the recipe card at the bottom of the page. Just change the number of portions and it will recalculate the ingredient amounts for you!
