Witch Slaw Fun Halloween Recipes!

Witch's Slaw Recipe


  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage plus one leaf for hats
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 red apple, cored and shredded; shred this last and mix quickly with the vinegar so it does not turn brown (we left the peel on for nutrients and color)
  • 1 cup light vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  2. Chill until ready to serve. For fun with older kids, you can garnish each serving with a witch’s hat or plastic spider.

How to Make A Witch's Hat:

  1. Microwave a piece of cabbage for 20-30 seconds so it becomes pliable.
  2. Cut it into strips.
  3. Roll each strip into the shape of a hat (see photos for an illustrated step-by-step).
