Healthy Coleslaw gets its flavor from cabbage and kale. Plain Greek yogurt gives it a smooth creamy texture.
Until a few years ago I always said that I didn't like coleslaw. When it was on a menu or served at a restaurant, I'd politely take the alternative or just let it sit untouched.
Unknown to many, I had only tried it once before making my decision to dislike it. I couldn't say the word without wrinkling my nose in disapproval.
A few years ago I had the pleasure of trying coleslaw at a local restaurant, absent of the thick white dressing, and it was so very pleasant. I actually began to crave that specific coleslaw.
The crunchy cabbage had a fun texture and the bright, flavorful dressing made it such an anticipated savory treat.
The restaurant serving my new favorite thing was a bit out of the way and not budget-friendly, so it wasn’t exactly convenient for me to get that coleslaw fix. I made my own grilled coleslaw recipe and that has become a favorite at my house.
On one occasion, I actually tossed the meat of a very-burned-chicken into a batch of my homemade coleslaw to make it edible. It worked, and no one suspected a thing!
Now I'm a big fan of coleslaw as a side, in sandwiches and in wraps. It’s pretty darn good on top of a grilled portobello mushroom too.
Over time my family becomes more and more conscious of what we eat and how it affects our bodies so I often make changes for a healthier version of favorite recipes, including coleslaw.
I want to share this healthy coleslaw recipe with you today. Absent of mayo, there isn't a greasy aftertaste.
The Greek yogurt adds protein and gives the dressing a smooth, creamy texture and the kale adds much needed nutrition. Feel free to add even more kale if you'd like to kick it up a notch.
This healthy coleslaw is even more liked than my original coleslaw recipe. In my opinion, it's quite pleasant and doesn't fit the boring stereotype that some healthy recipes imply.
