Ingredients

  • 10 ounces Mann's Power Blend superfood mix with kale 284 grams (or use a bag of your favorite undressed broccoli or cabbage slaw mix)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • ½ cup chopped apple (do not peel!)
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds (shelled and toasted)
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped

For the kale slaw dressing:

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup yogurt, plain, low-fat (regular, not Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (use sugar-free maple syrup to keep this recipe added sugar free)
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

To make kale apple slaw:

  • Chop the apple into ½-inch dice (1.27 cm), finely chop the red onion, and chop the dates.
  • Add the Power Blend, onion, apples, sunflower seeds, and dates to a large bowl. Stir.

To make kale slaw dressing:

  • Whisk all of the "for the kale slaw dressing" ingredients together until smooth.
  • Pour the dressing over the top of the kale mixture and stir to combine. Enjoy!

Notes

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). The nutrition information provided is for a realistic serving size, ¼ of the recipe. However, you could stretch this slaw recipe into 6 servings if you are feeding a larger crowd.
This slaw has an excellent nutrition profile, packed with essential vitamins, healthy fats from seeds, and fiber. However, it’s definitely a side dish since it is relatively low in protein. Make sure to include some protein foods when you compose your meal.
I often post single entrée or side dish recipes. However, it is important to think about how each of these components might fit into the meal as a whole.
If you have a weight loss goal, higher-calorie side dishes (such as this one) are best served with lean proteins. By lean proteins, I’m referring to foods like extra lean beef burgers (bunless) or chicken breast. Since this slaw has almost 300 calories, using lighter (low-calorie) foods for the rest of the meal will help to balance things out.
On the other hand, if you’re serving fatty meat (e.g., ribs), it may be best to go light on the sides. One of my easiest go-to low-calorie sides is a side salad of leafy greens with 1 tablespoon of dressing.
Nutrition information is for one serving of kale apple slaw made with maple syrup. If you make kale slaw without sugar added (i.e., using sugar-free syrup) the stats are 257 calories, 20.2 grams net carbs, and 4.8 grams protein per serving.
