Here’s a lesson in how, as food allergy parents, we are always learning new things!
For eleven years, our family gave up coleslaw. At some point in time, I told myself this was not an allergy-safe option for us. Maybe that was when we had egg allergies and vegan mayo wasn’t a thing.
But at any rate, yeah, our kiddos had never had coleslaw. Until this summer.
Inside our private allergy group, a member shared they were having coleslaw on their holiday menu. And my eyes took a double-take. HOW?
This is why I love allergy community so much. I learn just as much from you all as you learn from me!
So after doing a little thinking and researching, I decided that very cleaned prepackaged slaw and homemade slaw dressing could work safely for us. And it did!
Now we’re addicted. What an awesome, no-cook option for this food allergy family. YUM!
I buy pre-shaved, bagged cabbage and carrots at the store and make sure to wash it thoroughly in apple cider vinegar.
Then I use this simple slaw dressing recipe shared by an allergy mom in our Facebook page.
If you don’t have lemon juice on hand, just use more vinegar. I love using apple cider vinegar specifically.
Maybe this opens some options for you, too! If you have egg allergy, try vegan mayonnaise. 🙂
