Apple Cranberry Slaw with Celery Seed Dressing

didn't like the idea of cabbage, apple & onion so I just made the salad dressing using Equal instead of sugar (hubby is diabetic). THE DRESSING IS TO DIE FOR ! Even had it on a chicken sandwich - just great.

This is a delicious and easy recipe. I bought the already shredded cabbage to make it even quicker! Thanks for all these wonderful recipes that still make cooking and eating fun with CKD!

Apple Cranberry Slaw with Celery Seed Dressing

I'm new at this. Why are almonds allowed when the diet given says no nuts? Dietitian comment: The reason nuts are limited on the kidney diet is due to high potassium and phosphorus content. However, you can still add a small amount to recipes if you are maintaining normal potassium and phosphorus levels. The 1/4 cup of slivered almonds in this recipe divided by 8 servings provides 22 mg potassium and 15 mg phosphorus per serving, whish is a very small amount.

Delicious! I'll need to halve the recipe next time as it's too much for just my husband and I.
