Greek Yoghurt Coleslaw Recipe

I have been lazy lately. With many good food delivery promos, we have been ordering pizzas and sushi rolls on weekends. All I need to do is to make a big serving of salad to compensate for the lack of greens in our takeaway meals and I instantly feel less guilty about all that delicious junk food :P


Prepack Coleslaw Mix

Prepack Coleslaw Mix
As a short-cut, you can use a pre-packed coleslaw mix. The packet I bought contained 99% shredded white cabbage. But that’s okay. I use that as the base for the coleslaw and will be adding on my own red cabbage and carrot for colour.

Cabbage Peeler
Shred cabbage thinly with a cabbage peeler (pictured above; I got this from Daiso), a mandolin or by knife.

Zig Zag Carrot Peeler
Shred carrot using a zig-zag vegetable peeler (pictured above), a mandolin or by knife.


Greek Yoghurt Mini Tubs
This is Greek yoghurt. I always buy the mini tubs as shown above as they keep well in the fridge as long as they are sealed. I use them by the tub(s) in my recipe measurements (such as my overnight oat recipes) for convenience.

Greek Yoghurt Coleslaw Dressing
In a bowl, add 1 mini tub Greek yoghurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, zero-calorie syrup or honey) and garlic salt.

Walden Farms Zero Calorie Pancake Syrup
P.S. This is the zero-calorie pancake syrup I used as a replacement for honey.

Greek Yoghurt Coleslaw Dressing
Mix well until the dressing is smooth and well combined. Season to taste. For me, the coleslaw should be slightly sweet with a tinge of tangy.
