  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings as a salad or 12 in pulled pork sandwiches 1x
  • Category: Salad
  • Method: No Cook
  • Cuisine: North American


  • 1 small bag of coleslaw (1 lb or 6 cups)*

Healthy Coleslaw Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup whole plain yogurt (I used 3.5%)**
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste


  1. In a small bowl, whisk Healthy Coleslaw Dressing ingredients.
  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.
  3. Serve as a salad or I highly recommend to make my healthy pulled pork and top with this healthy coleslaw. Yum!

Store: Refrigerate dressing separately for up to 3 days and combine with coleslaw when ready to serve.


*For larger crowds double the recipe. **I tried using 2% yogurt and dressing wasn’t good, not to mention 0%. You can also use Greek yogurt but in any case, make sure to buy 3.5+% .
