Simple Low Fodmap Coleslaw

January 23, 2018

Low fodmap simple coleslaw recipe by the Fussy Fodmapper. Perfect as a side salad for a low fodmap BBQ.

This simple coleslaw is a great side to serve at BBQs. I particularly enjoy this one served with my lemon herb BBQ chicken and herb roasted potato wedges.

Low Fodmap Simple Coleslaw Recipe

Serves four


350g of red cabbage
1 large carrot
¼ cup of spring onion tops (green part only)
½ cup of low fodmap mayonnaise (I use Kewpie Mayo#)
1 tablespoon of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard (I use Maille Dijon Originalle#)
Salt and pepper to taste


Finely slice the cabbage and grate the carrot. Using kitchen scissors, finely chop the spring onion tops. Combine the cabbage, carrot and spring onion tops in a bowl.
In a separate bowl add the mayonnaise, lemon juice/vinegar and mustard, stirring until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Combine the cabbage mix and mayonnaise mix, stirring until just combined (note: combining just before serving will ensure a crisper coleslaw).
