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.

IF YOU PUT MAYANAISE SALAD CREAM AND A LITTLE OLIVEOIL TO MAKE IT REALY SPECIAL. ALSO ADD A LITTLE GRATED APPLE . I DONT GRATE THE ONION AS IT MAKES IT BITTER AND THE CABBAGE IS BETTER DONE BY HAND

I always add a good shake of celery salt - it really adds something!

I added some english mustard along with the wholegrain - made for spicy alternative for those that like a bit of heat!

Never again will I buy ready-made stuff (although to be honest, I made it unhealthy again by adding a good dollop of crème fraiche).

Cannot get enough of this! Perfect as a side, or on a jacket potato. I used fat free yoghurt, and low fat mayo making it a lot healthier than normal as well.

I used wholegrain mustard as I didn't have any dijon and it was very tasty

this was easy and refreshing. i added a splash of white wine vinegar to the mix along with a pinch of paprika. agree with others that it looks/tastes better than store-bought!

Very tasty and quick. I also grated a raw parsnip, added an extra edge!

I made this for my six year old grandsons BBQ Birthday Party. It is an excellent recipe. I used Lidls Mayonnaise with Herbs instead of the yoghurt and mayo. It was yummy.

Dijon gives it a nice touch, I loathe shop bought coleslaw but had forgotten how quick it was to make your own! I couldn't be bothered with the processor, by hand it still only took 10 mins

I've been making my own coleslaw for years and this really is one of lifes joys! You'll never be satisfied with store bought again. I slice by hand as I like the texture and bite of the cabbage and onion, and grate the carrot. Gorgeous in summer and also at Christmas as a side with all those cold cuts and pickles!

Good advice using just 4 x tbsp yogurt

But I would also use 2 and half tbsp of low fat mayo instead, and it taste alot better when you add more mustard, great coleslaw, it just needs tweaking. Dont add salt or vinegar

I'm a bit mystified by all the 5* reviews for this - I thought it was very bland and watery-tasting. Next time I'll ditch the yogurt and use mayo only or mayo with vinegar to try and boost the flavour. I think more onion too might liven it up a bit.

I'm not a huge fan of coleslaw usually, but as luck would have it, the contents of my fridge contained 2 carrots, a cabbage and an onion - fate obviously. It's quite tasty, the onion isn't overpowering and it;s quite light because of the yogurt, planning to have it for supper with spicy falafals.

I added some chopped apple to mine too. Delicious!

I used fat free greek yogurt with reduced fat mayonaise. Liked the coleslaw. Very morish and very healthy!
