Coleslaw Crack

I love coleslaw. I love coleslaw so much; I have made a game of it every time that I eat out. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I will rate my meal based on how this insignificant side dish is offered to my trained taste buds. Is it spicy? Is it tangy? Are the pieces tiny and shaped like confetti or maybe like mini veggie straws?  I should have achieved some kind of achievement by now for how often I will try and get it on my plate. I think coleslaw ninja would be an acceptable title. Despite my love for this side dish, I have never actually made it myself.

While making dinner for my grandfather the other day, I figured it would be a great chance to give it a shot. I have been on a huge Greek yogurt kick lately, the far superior replacement for mayonnaise in my opinion, so this was going to be a great opportunity to not only feed my slaw cravings but to also prove to myself how awesome this funny white tasting goop really is. In my zealous attempt to make my first batch of coleslaw, I somehow created the best tasting side dish that has ever pasted my lips. I usually try and be pretty tough on myself whenever I make something, be it food, pottery, or otherwise, but I would be damned if I don’t give credit where credit is due! So here it is, the first and last coleslaw recipe that I will ever make.

Coleslaw Crack

New Favorite Coleslaw Recipe!
Grocery List:
1 medium carrot, shredded
¼ of a red onion, shredded
¼ cabbage, shredded
3 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
½ tsp celery seeds
½ tsp salt
1 tsp pepper


1) The first thing you’re going to want to do is shred up your cabbage, carrot and red onion, if you haven’t done that yet.

2) Once all shredded up, you will to want to lightly mix/toss those veggies in a medium bowl.
3) In a separate bowl, you are going to mix the rest of the ingredients. Make sure there aren’t any clumps and everything has a smooth consistency.

4) Now take the sauce that you have just made and pour it over the cabbage mix. Thoroughly mix your master piece together so that everything is coated evenly with the dressing.

5) Now are going to want to enjoy your delectable side dish! Once you are convinced that this is the recipe for you, you are going to want to share this blog post with all of your friends and family so they can all enjoy it too! ;-) Sharing is caring!

I loved this recipe, and I really hope you do to. I would really hate myself if I took all this time to puff up this recipe to just have you make something that you hated. So I will be holding my breath while you try it for yourself and see what you think! Please like comment and share, and thank you for reading!

Till next time,



  1. I just ate coleslaw last night. Delicious! I think it's one of the more healthy options for a side out there. Much better than fries. I'm not a big fan of the kind made with a ton of dill though. Happy eating coleslaw ninja.

    1. I would have to agree! Especially if you swap out the mayo, its practically fat free. :-)

  2. I too love coleslaw. Copied your recipe and will try it out over the weekend. Loved the post. Stopping in from A-Z.

  3. Excellent! Thanks for the recipe. I've got a pirated version of the KFC coleslaw recipe, which I love, but it is totally swimming in mayo. gail
