Coleslaw and Dressing

Some may call it “Confetti Coleslaw” – I do like that name. I love coleslaw and have been searching for the perfect dressing for homemade slaw for years and years.

Today I found it.

It may already be in existence, I don’t know. I am not stealing this from anyone, I cannot look at all the recipes out there for coleslaw dressing. I stumbled on this myself, out of my own head, this morning, and it was one of those “Wow!” moments when I had my bowl of coleslaw this morning for breakfast (yes, you heard right – breakfast. Why not? It’s very high in fiber and what a good healthy way to start the day!)

So I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy, if you decide to give it a try. If you make a big batch, and keep it separate from the dressing, you can store it in the fridge all week and have quick delicious coleslaw all week long.



Thinly Slice by hand:

1/4th head of red cabbage

1/4th head of green cabbage


2 cups peeled carrots

Thinly Slice:

10-12 large radishes

I use my Cuisineart for shredding the carrots and then switch to the slicing attachment for the radishes, but slicing the radishes by hand would be just as easy.


1 cup mayonnaise

2 (4 oz.) containers of Dannon Activia Yogurt (peach/or other flavor)

1 Tsp red wine vinegar

1 Tsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tsp Dry Mustard

1 Tsp Raw Sugar (optional)

1 Heaping TBSP sweet pickle relish

Pinch Salt & Pepper

Blend above dressing ingredients in a jar and refrigerate.

You may add dressing to coleslaw now, but I like to keep the two separate until it’s time to eat. I don’t like soggy coleslaw!
