Tested by Cairo Cooking

This salad was tested in the CairoCooking test kitchen and the result: Yummy! It's sweet, crunchy yet light! While the almonds add some nuttiness, the raisins bring a sweet dimension to this all time classic. If you try this no-mayo dressing, you might never want to eat the mayo coleslaw again. We added 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard instead of the recommended 2 tablespoons since we felt it might be too strong - it worked for us. Therefore we advise to add the Dijon gradually and taste as you go!

This is a healthier version of the creamy, crunchy classic version. Just throw one pack of coleslaw mix (you can find it at larger supermarkets) or shred a bunch of carrots, red and white cabbage. Add some almonds and raisins and this healthy dressing below.



  • 1 pack Coleslaw salad pack (OR shredded carrots, red and white cabbage to taste) - (كيس سلطة الكرنب (الكول سلو
  • 2 handful almonds (peeled & sliced) - لوز
  • 1 handful raisins - زبيب
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard - مسطردة ديجون
  • 2 tablespoon honey - عسل
  • 1/4 cup corn oil - زيت ذرة
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar - خل حمض تفاح
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper - فلفل أسود
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt - ملح

Step by step

  1. Add the sliced almonds & raisins to the packed coleslaw mix or mix of shredded carrots, red and white cabbage.
