  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 large cabbage, sliced as thinly as you can or whizzed in a food processor
  • 1 cup finely minced white onion
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • a few sprigs of flat-leafed parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 small tub plain low-fat Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise


In a colander, stir together salt and cabbage.

Let sit for 15 minutes, patting the cabbage dry after liquid has drained out.

Add onion, carrot and parsley and transfer to serving bowl.

In a mixing bowl, stir together sugar, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, black pepper, Greek yoghurt, and mayonnaise.

Pour over vegetables and mix well to combine.


  • Although the mayonnaise is optional I think it adds a nice, creamy touch to the coleslaw dressing.
  • Half a grated apple added to the veggie mix gives a lovely, fruity flavour to the coleslaw.
