Creamy Low-FODMAP Coleslaw; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Serves 6

Prep time: 20 min plus 4 hours or overnight for marinating


  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise ( I like Hellman’s brands, no high fructose corn syrup in this)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (check to ensure no high-FODMAP onion or garlic in your mustard)
  • 1 & ½ cups finely shredded green (common) cabbage
    • 3/4 cup is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1 & ½ cups finely shredded red cabbage (purple color)
    •  3/4 cup is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1 large carrot, shredded coarsely
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish

Make cole slaw

  • In a large bowl whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and mustard
  • Add remaining cole slaw ingredients and salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine well
  • Cole slaw is best when made 4 hours ahead (or overnight) and chilled, covered

I love this coleslaw with my low-FODMAP Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich!
