Ingredients for No-Mayo Coleslaw
Start by gathering your ingredients.
For this coleslaw recipe you will need plain greek yogurt, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper, and either a bag of coleslaw mix or cabbage, carrots, and broccoli if you would like to chop your own veggies and make your coleslaw from scratch.
Lemon juice is optional, so if you would like to add a hint of lemon to your coleslaw grab some lemon juice as well.
How to Make No-Mayo Coleslaw
You won't believe how simple it is to put together this healthy coleslaw.
Start by combining all your ingredients, except the veggie themselves, in a large bowl. Stir well to combine.
Then, add your chopped veggies or premade coleslaw mix and toss to coat.
Cover up your coleslaw and pop it in the refrigerator to chill until it is time to serve. If possible, allow to chill overnight to best allow all the flavors to combine.
But no worries if you are making this as a last-minute side dish – it is fine to serve right away too.
