Tips about Simple Coleslaw:
- The reason this coleslaw is named Simple Coleslaw is because it has just 4 ingredients. I purposefully do not add sugar, my family never added it and honestly, we get more than enough sugar in our daily lives.
- If you use a food processor to shred the cabbage you will end up with much smaller pieces of cabbage. I personally enjoy the rustic look of hand shredding it. It really doesn’t take any longer and there is one less thing to clean up.
- Greek yogurt can be substituted for the mayo but I highly recommend finding the thickest and creamiest version possible.
- Generally some form of a white vinegar is used in most coleslaw recipes and definitely can be used for this Simple Coleslaw. However, my favorite vinegar to use is raw apple cider vinegar with the mother. I love the dose of probiotics and blood sugar support it provides. (affiliate)
