coleslaw with yogurt dressing

Some yummy coleslaw with yogurt dressing instead of mayonnaise-y dressing. feels so much healthier! Not that I have any problems with mayonnaise, but I have been completely obsessed with plain greek yogurt recently, eating kilos and kilos of it, and this was just one of the yogurt incarnations. you know, when I wasn’t spooning it straight from the tub at the open fridge.

Coleslaw ingredients included: sliced red cabbage, chopped celery – stalks AND leaves, julienned carrot, finely diced onion.. that’s about it.

Yogurt dressing was: a big splodge of greek style plain yogurt, a splosh of white vinegar, salt, pepper. that’s totally it.

Simple, colourful and delicious.

  1. hi Kiki, yeah, freshly made coleslaw is nothing like the awful soggy versions Aussies love to buy pre-made from the supermarket. fresh coleslaw is really crunchy and zingy and tasty!

    1. Coolio, sorry I’m not much of a quantities prescriber with my recipes, it’s kinda a case of however much you like of each ingredient.. but roughly I’d say that 1/4 a medium cabbage, 3 stalks of celery, 2 carrots, 1/2 an onion, then maybe 3 large tablespoons of yogurt and somewhat less vinegar (I also use lemon for this either as well of or instead of vinegar) will give you a descent lunch/dinner side-dish salad for a couple of people – add more of everything if serving more people, or people who like coleslaw more 😉
