I am dead serious when I say I could eat this slaw ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. It’s crunchy, cool, creamy, and spicy – all in one bowl and it’s a delicious accompaniment to spicy beef or pork dishes, such as Chipotle Sloppy Joes, Beef Carnitas, or as above, on Bacon-Wrapped HotDogs.
My Favorite Veggie Coleslaw
1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2-3 Tbs. light mayonnaise
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
juice and zest of 1 lime
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
12 – 16 oz. package coleslaw mix (the packages vary in size depending on the brand)
1 cup shredded carrots
1 red bell pepper, cut into very thin strips
1 jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed, minced
To prepare crunchy coleslaw, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl; add coleslaw mix, carrots, bell pepper, and jalapeno, tossing to coat.
Season to taste with kosher salt and black pepper, as desired. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
