I admit it. Coleslaw is not something I usually enjoy (unless it's served on a Primanti's sandwich, but that's another kind of blog!) I usually pass it up at picnics and push it to the side of my plate when it arrives unannounced at a restaurant. I was reluctant to try this recipe but I needed a side dish for the Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches and this looked easy and had mostly ingredients I already had on-hand. I'm so glad we tried this! It's tangy and refreshing - it tastes healthy and sinful at the same time. It's the perfect complement to the chicken sandwiches and I think it would go wonderfully with any summer picnic dish!
Lightened-Up Classic Coleslaw
1 5.3-ounce container nonfat Greek yogurt (or 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup mayonnaise (reduced fat is fine)
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 16-ounce bag pre-shredded coleslaw mix
2 tsp caraway seeds (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Add the coleslaw mix and the caraway seeds, if using. Toss to coat. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to an hour.
