  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) canola oil or other neutral flavored oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (123 g) lactose-free yogurt, preferably whole milk, such as Green Valley Organics


  • 8 ounces (225 g) green cabbage, cored, outer leaves removed and finely shredded
  • 4 ounces (115 g) red cabbage, cored, outer leaves removed and finely shredded
  • 3 ounces (85 g) Lacinato kale, about 6 large leaves, large ribs removed and finely shredded
  • 3 medium carrots, scrubbed or peeled, tops discarded, shredded
  • 1/2 cup (87 g) pomegranate seeds (arils)


  1. For the Dressing: Shake all the ingredients together in a covered jar, or whisk well together in a bowl.
  2. For the Slaw: Toss together the green cabbage, red cabbage, kale and carrots in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with dressing, tossing as you go, using only enough to just moisten the slaw. Salad is ready to serve or may be refrigerated covered in an airtight container for up to 6 hours. Toss in pomegranate seeds right before serving.


  • Some folks do well with cabbage and some do not. If you are in the latter category, don't fret. Try re-Challenging yourself in 6 months or so. Our GI tracts change, sometimes for the better sometimes for the worse, but it is not unusual to have different results down the line.
