Yogurt Slaw

I have never been a big coleslaw girl, mainly because I just can't handle the idea of mayonnaise which serves as the base for most coleslaw recipes. As you have probably noticed, I love to swap yogurt for everything! It just makes me feel better and I get a lot more nutrition out of whatever I'm cooking. This is one super healthy recipe for coleslaw that my family loves and I can (and do) enjoy! It's also hubby approved which is always good...

Oh and... I put a cheat sheet at the bottom for you guys to check out if you are interested in trying a few of my favorite yogurt swaps.

1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
1/2 tsp country dijon mustard
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
1/8 tsp each: salt, pepper, cayenne
1 Tbsp water
3 cups slaw cabbage mix (shredded green and red cabbage with carrots)

Mix together all ingredients except for the cabbage mix. Add in the cabbage mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes to let flavors incorporate. Toss one final time and serve chilled.

Enjoy! XOXO~

Here is the yogurt swap chart I live by. However, I will say that in baked goods, I typically swap applesauce for oil instead of yogurt, using the same amount of applesauce as the recipe suggests for oil, so give that a shot too!


  1. Sounds yummy, will have to try this recipe soon! Thanks for posting the swap chart. I wish I'd seen it before I made curry chicken salad for lunch today. The calories saved could have made up for the Easter candy that was calling me!
    P.S. Love and can't stop listening to your CD...every song a winner. Happy Easter to you and your family :)

  2. Very refreshing looking for summertime especially when wanting something to eat that is cooling to the throat.

  3. I too am NOT a coleslaw kinda girl, it REALLY grosses me out. There's only been one that I liked made by a friend, but I'd be willing to give this a try. You ain't lying about the Applesauce. it IS the BOMB to substitute for oil. We did that for Amish bread once & loved it. So now we always use it, quite yummy in the waffle/pancake mix. Thanks girl.

  4. Made this for dinner tonight. Added a little finely chopped red onion and some chopped up radishes to the coleslaw mix. Boy was it yummy! Dressing was amazing! :-)
