Fannetastic Food Watermelon Rind Coleslaw

Have Made It

Recipe created by Anne Mauney, MPH, RD, dietitian and blogger at

  • Yields

    3 cups coleslaw



  1. To grate the watermelon rind: cut the flesh (the pink part you normally eat) away from the white rind. Then cut the very thin layer of green skin off of the rind (it may be easier to use a peeler for the skin). Grate the chunks of white rind on a coarse box grater. Place the grated rind in a colander and press gently to drain some of the water (no need to go crazy and get all of the juice out).
  2. Combine the grated watermelon rind, bell pepper, carrot, green onions, and cilantro in a large bowl. Toss to combine.
  3. In a small jar, combine the apple cider vinegar, mustard, olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Shake to combine.
  4. Pour the dressing over the watermelon rind mixture and toss to coat. Enjoy!

Cilantro in Cole slaw? Really?

Knowing that cilantro isn’t an herb for every palette, feel free to either leave it out or swap for another fresh herb. Perhaps try parsley, as cilantro is a member of the parsley family. Good luck!
