Low fodmap coleslaw

This is one of those recipes that is super easy to make low fodmap but shop bought is usually full of fodmaps. Shop bought always has onion added but I’ve used chives instead to keep the flavour without the pain.

I’ve used red cabbage because it’s the least likely to cause any stomach symptoms. Cabbage, even though it’s low fodmap, can sometimes cause a bit of a reaction, but I’ve never had a problem with red.

Also make sure to check that the mayonnaise is low fodmap. Full fat Hellmans mayonnaise is a great option.



  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Half a red cabbage
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • Black pepper to taste ( I don’t add salt as it causes the cabbage to release its moisture and the mix becomes very wet. Also the mayo is pretty salty anyway)


  1. Grate the carrots and finely slice the red cabbage.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together until it’s the consistency you like. Feel free to add more or less depending on how you like it!
