Courgette, celery and apple. Don't use mayonnaise, prefer a vinagrette style dressing or 50/50.

Surely Apple is too carby? Mayo is fine carb wise.

I use red cabbage, carrot, walnuts, celery, spring onions, apple and real mayonnaise.

Celeriac and onion?

There's a recipe on the spreadsheet, in the ubercamp menus for coleslaw that is sufficiently low carb!

Let me see if I can find it.

Apple is definitely out though!

Here you go:


125g white cabbage (less than 1/4 of a cabbage)
75g carrot (1 medium-sized carrot)
25g shallot (1/2 a banana/echalion shallot)

Slice white cabbage thinly
Grate carrot finely (don't use the largest holes on the grater)
Chop shallot finely

Add oil and wine vinegar - roughly 3 tablespoons oil and 1 tablespoon vinegar, and salt and black pepper. Stir everything well together. Leave for half an hour or so. Just before serving, stir in a tablespoon of mayo.

This will make 2 portions

It's about 6g carbs per portion - although the mayo you use will also make a difference, as some are carbier than other

By the way, cabbage is 5g carbs per 100g, so it's not forbidden, just falls outside the list of veg that you should be focussing on
