Kale & Cilantro Slaw

I recently shared one of my favorite recipes {slow cooker pulled pork} so it’s only right that I share the best accompaniment that goes with this dish.


This kale and cilantro slaw is perfect nutritionally-

dark leafy greens, check!

extra protein and probiotics from the Greek yogurt dressing, check!

Cool and tangy to offset the spicy and warm pork, check!

Pretty colors to “eat with your eyes”, check!

It’s also fast, easy, and while it gets better with time as it sits, it tastes great right away so no need to make ahead if you don’t have the time!


Kale and Cilantro Slaw

Serves: 4-6


1/2 head of purple cabbage, julienne

4 stalks kale, julienne

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

juice of 1 lime

pinch of kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon honey

freshly ground black pepper


In a large bowl, add the cabbage, kale, cilantro, lime juice, salt, & pepper.

Prepare the dressing by combining the yogurt, vinegar, garlic powder, honey, and black pepper. Whisk together with a fork.

Pour the dressing over the veggie mixture. Toss well to combine.
