This easy coleslaw is the best coleslaw recipe that I've tried! It's a combination of shredded cabbage and carrot mix, tossed in a flavorful, creamy dressing. This basic coleslaw recipe is super tasty, quick to make, and it pairs well with so many different meals! A great side dish for a barbecue or picnic!
To prepare cabbage, cut the head of cabbage in half and cut off the center core. To shred the cabbage and carrots you can thinly slice them with a knife or better use a cheese grater, mandoline or food processor.
You will need to purchase 1 head each of red and green cabbage and 3 large carrots for this recipe.
OPTIONS AND VARIATIONS:
Use a bag of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots as a time saver. Just be sure, you're using about 7-8 cups of slaw total.
To lower the calories, use plain greek yogurt in place of all or part of the mayonnaise. You can also use a low calorie mayo.
If you don't want a creamy coleslaw, try leaving out the mayonnaise and replacing it with 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil for a vinaigrette coleslaw.
MIX IN IDEAS: slivered almonds, dried cranberries or golden raisins, shredded chicken, chopped apples, diced onions, diced mango or pineapple.
