Several weeks ago I had a family party for Father’s Day, and my sister Valerie brought this Sweet Cabbage Slaw with Green Onion and Parsley. Everyone loved this cabbage slaw with a sweet-and-sour dressing, green onion, and parsley! I’m a big fan of parsley, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it used in a sweet coleslaw recipe like this and it turned out to be a great combination with the crunch of the cabbage, the sweet dressing, and the savory flavor of the green onion all getting along very well with the parsley.
The dressing on the salad Val made had quite a bit of sugar so I wasn’t sure how this would work with Stevia Granulated Sweetener, but when I tried it I loved the low-carb and South Beach friendly version of the salad just as much as the original. And this recipe is ALL about the parsley, so if you’re a parsley fan go ahead and use more parsley if you’d like!
Thinly slice the cabbage, then coarsely chop. Then coarsely chop parsley to make about 3/4 cup chopped parsley (or more!) and thinly slice the same amount of green onions. Val used regular white vinegar in this salad, but when I discovered I didn’t have any white vinegar, I made it with white balsamic vinegar, which was fantastic. Stir together the oil, white vinegar, sweetener of your choice, salt, and pepper to make the dressing. Then toss together the chopped cabbage, chopped parsley and sliced green onion. Add just enough dressing to moisten the salad and toss again. Simple and delicious!

Val's Sweet Cabbage Slaw with Green Onion and Parsley
Val’s Sweet Cabbage Slaw with Green Onion and Parsley is a great side to compliment any dish!
- 1/2 large head green cabbage (about 6 cups coarsely chopped cabbage)
- 3/4 cup chopped parsley (or more, you can use curly or flat parsley)
- 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onion (or more)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar or white vinegar
- 1/2 cup Stevia Granulated Sweetener, or sweetener of your choice
- salt to taste (I used about 3/4 tsp. sea salt)
- freshly ground black pepper to taste (I used about 1/4 tsp.)
- Cut out core from cabbage, then thinly slice and coarsely chop slices until you have about 6 cups chopped cabbage.
- Wash and coarsely chop parsley.
- Thinly slice green onions.
- In small bowl or glass measuring cup, stir together the canola oil, white balsamic vinegar or white vinegar, sweetener, salt, and pepper.
- Put chopped cabbage, chopped parsley, and sliced green onions into salad bowl and toss to combine.
- Add just enough dressing to moisten salad, and toss again. (You may not need all the dressing.)
- Taste to see if you want more salt or pepper, then serve.
- This will keep for a day or so in the fridge, although I think it’s better freshly made when the cabbage has more crunch.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Using Stevia or another low-calorie sweetener would make this Sweet Cabbage Slaw with Green Onion and Parsley a great side dish for any low-carb or low-glycemic eating plan, including any phase of the South Beach Diet. White balsamic vinegar does have some carbs, so this may not work for Keto.
