When the weather warms up I am a big fan of salads with tons of raw veggies. This broccoli slaw is one of my favorite ways to prepare raw broccoli with a tangy and probiotic-rich coconut-yogurt-based dressing. In just a few minutes you can have a nutrient-dense, flavorful salad ready to be eaten by itself (I can easily go for a big portion for lunch most days!) or with a side protein like roasted chicken or steak.

Substitution note: you can also use raw, shredded Brussels sprouts or cabbage here! Enjoy!

Prep time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • For the salad:
  • 6 cups broccoli (about 2 large heads), chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • ¼ cup thinly-sliced red onion
  • ¼ cup minced, dried apricots

  • For the dressing:
  • ½ cup coconut yogurt (check ingredients for AIP-friendly products)
  • ½ avocado, flesh
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ¼ cup avocado or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Place the broccoli, carrot, onion, and apricots in a bowl and set aside while you make the dressing.
  2. To make the dressing, place the yogurt, avocado, lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt, and water in a blender and blend until combined. If the consistency is too thick, add a tablespoon or two of water to thin to desired consistency.
  3. Combine the salad and dressing and toss before serving.

    Due to severe psoriasis flares I cannot tolerate citrus of any kind. Seriously limits already limited AIP diet. Any advice on coconut yogurts without citrus (citric acid)? I have No flavor anymore : (

      Hi Pamela, sorry to hear! Have you tried making your own coconut yogurt? I know there are many AIP bloggers with recipes.

  • Julie says

    Great recipe, I’m going to try it today! Thank you! I have 2 of your cookbooks and love all the recipes.

  • Alicia says

    I made this last night and loved it! I shredded the carrots instead of chopping them, and I also added chopped kale to it.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Smart addition with the carrots, Alicia!

  • Nellie Blanton says

    I have made this recipe multiple times in the last few months. It is so tasty and satisfying, it also lead to me finding a non dairy yogurt I really enjoy.

      I’m so happy it was a win for you, Nellie!
