Creamy Slaw Dressing

Makes approximately 1/2 cup

Ingredients:

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp oil, I like to use a mix of olive and flaxseed oils

3 tbsp coconut yoghurt

1 tbsp dijon mustard

1 pinch of salt & pepper

1 tsp dried mixed herb

1/4 tsp garlic powder


Method:


Place all of the ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine


To Serve:

Drizzle over your favourite salad or add to some finely sliced green and red cabbage, and grated carrot to make a healthy nutrient rich slaw!


This is a super easy alternative to traditional salad and slaw dressings, full of health-giving fats with the added benefits from coconut yoghurt! 

  

Whether you are making a conscious decision to remove dairy from your diet or if you are intolerant or allergic to lactose, coconut yoghurt is a healthy alternative and a great source of many nutrients and often has gut-loving probiotic cultures added to it.


· High in vitamin C

· High in Iron, magnesium, potassium, and selenium

· Source of lauric, capric and caprylic acid

· May help control weight

· May reduce the risk of atherosclerosis

· May boost immunity and reduce inflammation

· May help lower cholesterol


But what about the saturated fat content?

Not all saturated fats are created equally. The saturated fat in coconut yoghurt is largely medium-chain triglycerides that may help control weight, reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and boost immunity. The lauric and caprylic acid in coconut yoghurt may specifically help control the overgrowth of bad bacteria such as Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus. Studies suggest that lauric acid in coconut oil may also help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol while also increasing “good” HDL cholesterol.
