You know, for the longest time I never ate coleslaw. I always thought it was really gross. Cabbage and mayo?? I’m really not sure where the appeal comes from, but Steve and my mom are both huge fans (weirdos), so one night when I was grilling up some hot dogs, I decided to try to make some coleslaw that was actually appealing.
I’m pretty much convinced that Greek yogurt is the cure for all things. I have never made a dish and then thought “Man, it would have been so much better if I had left off the Greek yogurt.” Perhaps I am weirdly obsessed, but it really is a magical food.
So I made coleslaw, which I thought I hated. But then I loved it. Steve was a little confused by the texture. He said coleslaw is usually more runny. That sounds gross. Thick, creamy, delicious, and packed with protein and veggies–now it really is the perfect side for your summer grilling!
- 2/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp honey
- Juice from 1/2 medium lemon
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- pinch each salt and pepper
- 5 cups coleslaw veggie mix*
- In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, honey, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper until combined. Stir in coleslaw mix. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
*Feel free to use fresh cabbage and carrots (or whatever shaved veggies you'd like) to create your own mix. I bought a bag at the store because it was easy, but I'm sure it would be even better with fresh produce!

I feel the same about coleslaw – I never eat it because it kind of grosses me out. But this? This I could see eating. And isn’t greek yogurt the cure for everything?

We like coleslaw and this sounds delicious! We’ve even put it on our turkey hot dogs before, yummy!
Yessss–been wanting to try that!

I hate mayo so this is perfect for me. And I agree- Greek yogurt is the cure for all things! Your version is so much healthier and fresh than usual slaws…hello probiotics! 🙂

I am the same way about coleslaw, I didn’t start eating it until the past couple of years. I hate when it is too mayo-y. This looks so good and crunchy!

I have to try this Ari! I love coleslaw so much (and Greek yog!!). I don’t like the taste of mayo, so this is perfect 🙂
Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate says
I might need to make this as a side with our burgers tonight…yum!!

I’ll add Greek Yogurt to anything. In fact, I just posted a recipe for Greek Yogurt muffins. Your coleslaw looks super appetizing!
Bethany Lyn says
I absolutely cannot stand the taste of mayo, I can’t wait to try this. I may need to take a special trip to the store for cabbage!
I’ve never tried coleslaw with greek yogurt before! So much healthier than mayo! Love the addition of a little honey for sweetness and the apple cider vinegar for some tang!
Genius! While I love the “gross” stuff I also love Greek yogurt! This coleslaw was amazing! I didn’t feel like I needed to walk 2 miles after consuming it
So glad you enjoyed it!!!
This recipe looks phenomenal! Can’t wait to try it over the weekend – my kids love coleslaw!
Thanks Jean! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
