Method

  1. Mix the yogurt, mustard and mayonnaise together in a bowl. Then, use a grater attachment on a food processor, or a box grater, to grate the cabbage and carrots. Either grate the onion or chop as finely as you can. Tip all of the vegetables into the bowl and stir through the dressing.
  2. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Nice recipe. To keep it really healthy though i would replace the mayo with a home made version using olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Hears a link to an omega-3 mayo recipe http://kinectmethod.co.uk/recipes/omega-3-mayonnaise/

The coleslaw can take an Asian twist by adding mint, coriander and chili. Serve it with some pork cooked in fish sauce and you have an amazing Vietnamese Banh Mi Salad. Click hear for a link to the recipe. http://kinectmethod.co.uk/recipes/banh-mi-salad/

Really easy and tasty! I'd use red cabbage instead though, and it gives the yoghurt a nice pink-y tinge!

This is a really easy recipe and tastes great. I didn't have plain yoghut so I used low fat creme fraiche, and I used low fat mayo. I also used 1 tsp of dijon mustard instead. If on Weightwatchers this equates to 6 generous servings at 2pp each! I served it with slow cooked BBQ pork and a bread roll.

Really good. Used my Julienne peeler for the carrots but struggled to grate the cabbage and onion, so ended up chopping them. Would definitely make again.

Substituted celeriac for cabbage. A few raisins and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Wow. They're commenting like it was restaurant stuff

really nice and simple to make. Used half a red onion, at first i did what some others did and only used 4 table spoons of yogurt, but it was too dry so ended up adding 5 spoon fulls and 3 spoon fulls of mayo. Had it with mustardy potato and chive salad another recipe on this site i would recommend making.
Went down lovely with a leafy salad and italian dressing, cherry tomatoes extra mature cheddar, beetroot and some pickle with a crusty french stick and a few slices of ham.

This coleslaw is so simple & much nicer than shop bought! I just grated by hand which only took a few minutes but I didn't add any onion.

made several times, like others say its best to reduce yogurt.
also, i use a crunchy apple and red onion grated (tried with white but red gives a subtle taste which doesn't detract from the overall taste, and looks prettier).

overall, so easy to make in processor and tastes so much better than store bought

This was a hit. Next time I will def use less yoghurt as suggested. Added two green chillis for a little kick.
