Low Calorie Cabbage Coleslaw

 The second recipe under the salad theme is, Cabbage Coleslaw. Coleslaws are type of salads that are prepared with raw shredded cabbages. You can combine purple and green cabbage or green cabbage and carrots and this coleslaw differs in each and every country. Also the dressing usually contains vinegar in it. It’s creamy and crunchy with all the flavors. Here is a low calorie version without the mayo.

Salads are healthy but the added calorie comes in the form of dressing and cheese. I always prefer light vinegar based salads but I love creamy coleslaws too. So instead of loading it with Mayo, I am using the Greek yogurt as the base for the dressing. It’s a simple dressing with Greek yogurt, honey mustard and apple cider vinegar with salt and sugar and of course pepper powder. I mixed both purple and green cabbage. Either you can go with one or combine both or add shredded carrots also.

Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV is known for its benefits and also there is popular belief that consuming it daily aids in weight loss. I am not sure about that and I don’t if it’s a myth or a fact. I do use them in my salad dressings and at times for baking. So without any delay here is the recipe,

  • Chopped Purple Cabbage – 1 cup
  • Chopped Green Cabbage – 1 cup

 For the dressing:

  • Greek Yogurt/Yoghurt/Curd – 1/3 cup (Nice thick and creamy curd)
  • Apple cider Vinegar – 1.5 tbsps
  • Sugar – 1 tsp
  • Honey Mustard – 1 tsp
  • Pepper Powder – 1 tsp (adjust according to your preference)

Notes:

  • Adjust the dressing ingredient measurements according to your preference.
  • As mentioned in the beginning, mayo can be used instead of greek yogurt.
  • If you mix the salad and dressing, there is a good of fermentation in this case as we are mixing yogurt and vinegar. So if you like pickled cabbages, mix the cabbages and everything else in the dressing except for yogurt. Before serving add the yogurt or mayo.

    Looks and sounds delicious, has anyone tried it yet? And would it go with ban pulled pork? I usually go for really creamy coleslaw bought from tesco.. This looks great, please let me know as got to cook lunch for 6 people in a few days time and wanted to do a few different sides of coleslaw…I’m very nervous as I don’t entertain much as I’m usually the one being entertained…so if promised to do it this year….thank you.

    • Hi Tracy, Thanks a lot. Being a vegetarian, I haven’t tried with pork. I served it along with Pizza and we all enjoyed it. This comes out pretty well. Please do try and let me know how you liked it. Thanks

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
