Healthy coleslaw recipe made with store bought coleslaw and homemade Greek yogurt dressing. Creamy, no mayo, easy and delicious.

It’s all about the dressing, that’s what gives coleslaw a bad rep, because on its own cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable full of cancer fighting properties, vitamins K,C, B, fiber, potasium and folate. It’s a nutritional power house, you just gotta “dress” it not with a cup of mayo.

Now having said that, I do consider a tablespoon or two of organic mayo here and there healthy.

How To Make Healthy Coleslaw Recipe

Healthy Coleslaw Ingredients:

Coleslaw: Small bag (14-16 oz) serves 4 as a salad and makes about 12 healthy pulled pork sandwiches (see below).

Yogurt: Plain regular or Greek yogurt with fat content 3.5% and higher (whole or full fat). Please do not try 0% or 2% yogurt, recipe won’t work.

Maple Syrup: What’s good about maple syrup is that it’s runny and mixes easily. You can use honey, just make sure it’s runny and if it has solidified, “melt” in a microwave or on a stovetop.

Vinegar: Any vinegar except balsamic will work – white, white wine, red wine, apple cider vinegar.

Lemon: A touch of lemon or lime juice adds more acid and flavour. You can replace it with more vinegar.

Healthy Coleslaw Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the dressing.
  2. In a large bowl, add coleslaw and pour dressing over; gently toss. Let salad sit for 5 minutes to allow flavours to mingle, and toss again.

Serving Ideas for Healthy Coleslaw

For a larger crowd, buy bigger bag of cabbage and double the amount of dressing.

To prepare ahead, make the dressing and refrigerate it for up to 3 days. When ready to serve, give it a stir and mix with a fresh bag of coleslaw.

And if you cook this pot of healthy pulled pork, top with coleslaw and serve on a fresh bun, everyone will love you even more. Trust me! Made from scratch, with simple ingredients, in a slow cooker for 10 hours.
