This coleslaw will have you thinking you’re digging into a mayo-filled bowl of slaw, but I swapped Greek yogurt for the traditional sour cream and mayo to give this bowl of veggies some creamy flavor, without all of the calories. A slaw with some protein and calcium for less than 50 calories per serving? Now you can have your slaw and eat it, too!
Ingredients (yields about ten 1/2-cup servings):
5 C shredded broccoli, carrots, cabbage or any other veggie you love! (I like the Trader Joe’s brand “Shredded Broccoli Slaw” package, which comes with 5 C shredded broccoli stalk and carrots – easy!)
1/4 C roasted sunflower seeds, unsalted
1 C 0% fat, plain Greek yogurt
1/3 C red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp ground black pepper
1 Tbsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
- Empty shredded veggies into large mixing bowl. Add sunflower seeds.
- In a separate (smaller) bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder until well combined. The dressing will have a creamy consistency.
- Pour the dressing over the slaw and use tongs to mix all ingredients together so that the slaw is coated with the dressing.
- Cover bowl or transfer into an airtight container and chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours, or until slaw is slightly wilted. Serve chilled and enjoy!
