One serving of coleslaw from a fast food restaurant can contain as much as 11 grams of fat. Here is a lower-fat version that only has 3 grams of fat per serving and makes a great side dish with a sandwich. You can also use it to top a BBQ pork sandwich or a reduced-fat hot dog.
- 6 cups packaged shredded cabbage and carrot mix for slaw
- ½ cup diced celeryDressing:
- ¾ cup non-fat plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- ¼ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons non-fat milk
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- White pepper to taste (be careful — it’s spicy!)
- In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots and celery.
- In a smaller bowl, stir the dressing ingredients.
- Mix the dressing with the vegetables.
- Chill for 2 hours. Re-stir if dressing separates before serving.
Makes six servings.
