Who doesn’t love coleslaw? It’s crunchy, it’s creamy, it’s slightly sweet, and it goes with just about anything, plus it always has me heading back and heaping another generous scoop onto my plate (no shame, it’s cabbage).

Here you get the perfect fall inspired coleslaw with it’s addition of apples, cranberries and almonds and it’s covered in a lighter Greek yogurt dressing (versus a classic coleslaw dressing that has as much as a cup of mayonnaise in it).

Here’s What You Need To Make The Dressing

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Mayo
  • Honey
  • Cidre Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper

This Apple Cranberry Almond Coleslaw has a mild flavor to it but if you’d like a more pronounced flavor you can definitely add in a tablespoon or two of dijon mustard to the dressing.

And if you want to skip a step you can use a coleslaw mix in place of the shredded cabbage and carrots. I think it’s time for pulled pork or pulled chicken sandwiches this week for dinner don’t you – and then of course this coleslaw to go with it!

  • Corina: Substituted medium firm organic tofu for the yogurt. Used a blender instead of whisk. Found it a bit too sweet so will reduce the amount of honey next time.
