Syn Free Mexican Slaw | Slimming World

This Syn Free Mexican Slaw joins the other slaw’s that we’ve made, like our Syn free Asian Slaw and Syn free Coleslaw. It’s full of speed food, which makes it perfect to enjoy on both the Slimming World Extra Easy plan and SP plan.

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 👍

There are two ways to make the base of this Syn Free Mexican Slaw, the easy way or the hard way.

Syn Free Mexican Slaw the easy way

Let’s start with the easy way. You can get the slaw base mix from Asda, where it comes as part of a Ranch Salad Kit. 1 pack will serve 2 people.

In the pack, you get the slaw, some ranch dressing and bacon bits. The dressing and bacon bits are pretty Synful, so bin them and just use the Slaw. We don’t need them for this recipe.

The harder way is to mandolin all of the ingredients yourself. This Syn Free Mexican Slaw isn’t difficult if you have a mandolin mind!

Don’t have one? You really should pick this one up from Amazon. It’s sturdy, and by far the safest mandolin we’ve used. It makes making slaw & slicing fruit and vegetables so much easier and quicker.

If you’re scared of slicing off your fingers, you could always buy a pair of cut-resistant gloves to protect your fingers too.

Next up is the dressing & the most important bit is the lime juice. It gives this Syn Free Mexican Slaw zing and balances the sweetness and heat perfectly.

It’s important that you let the slaw sit in the dressing for 5-10 minutes. Otherwise, you won’t get the full flavour effect.

This Syn Free Mexican Slaw goes SO well with our Syn Free Chizza!

Syn Free Chizza is what you get when you combine KFC Fakeaway with a Syn free pizza! In my opinion it’s a match made in heaven, a perfect weekend treat.
