  • 1/2 head of green cabbage, approximately 6 cups lightly packed
  • 1/3 head of red cabbage, approximately 2 cups lightly packed
  • 2 small apples peeled and thinly sliced, see notes
  • 1 cup Homemade Paleo Mayonnaise see notes
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey or coconut aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper plus more, to taste


  • Add the green cabbage, red cabbage, and apples to a large mixing bowl. Stir well to combine.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until the mayo, vinegar, honey or coconut aminos, celery seed, salt, and pepper are thoroughly combined. Taste for additional salt and pepper.
  • Add the slaw sauce, a few tablespoons at a time, until it’s coated to your liking. Expect to use about ¾ cup. Taste for salt and pepper.
  • This slaw will get even better as it sits. Stick it in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight if you have the time. Enjoy.


  • Feel free to use sweet or tart apples. I prefer to use sweet to balance out the tartness of the slaw sauce.
  • You will not use all of the slaw sauce you make. Add a few tablespoons at a time until it reaches your desired consistency. It will most likely be about 3/4 of the sauce.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
