Apple Coleslaw #CookoutWeek

By: The Food Hunter

What most people think of when they hear the word coleslaw is the heavy, mayo-laden shredded cabbage side dish available at most deli counters. In reality, slaws are much more than that. They are a crisp mixture of veggies, lightly flavored with a tangy dressing. They are easy to prepare and relatively healthy.

This stress-free side dish is best served straight out of the fridge when it is crunchy and cold. Bring it to your next cookout or picnic and watch how fast it's gobbled up!

 Apple Coleslaw
(printable recipe)

1/2 head cabbage, thinly sliced
2/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
2 small apple, grated

salt & pepper

In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, chive & apple. Mix in yogurt until well coated. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Best served chilled.


  1. Love a good coleslaw recipe. This one looks delicious! And I love all the yummy things shared in this cookout.

  2. This looks wonderful for a summer party!

  3. This looks like a great coleslaw to take to a Summer bbq!

  4. Love the easy side dish idea! I love coleslaw!

  5. Oh, I bet the sweet, fresh apple is the perfect addition to coleslaw!

  6. Oh good, I love that this isn't made w/ mayo. I really can't stand mayo so this one I would totally be on board with.

  7. Love the addition of the apple. Do you have a favourite kind of apple?
    I used to do this and have forgotten, so thanks for the reminder.
    Have used Macs normally.

  8. I'm a true lover of coleslaw. I could eat it every day. Love the sound of yours with the apple and Greek yogurt. YUM!

  9. I love a good apple slaw on pulled pork sandwiches or a turkey sandwich for lunch the next day. I can't wait to try your version.

  10. I love so much that you made slaw out of both cabbage and apples. It must pack a punch in teh flavor department!

  11. No this is a slaw that I could handle. I'm on of those people who think that it's all about the mayo. This sounds like a great alternative!

  12. This would be a great idea for a day after Thanksgiving sandwich!
