This spin on slaw has a bright lemony dressing. Matchstick-sliced apples add a touch of sweetness and counter the cabbage well.


  • 6 1⁄3 Tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  • 1⁄4 cup(s) fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, grated
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp table salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 14 oz packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • 2 medium fresh apple(s), Gala suggested, cut into matchsticks
  • 1⁄4 cup(s) fresh parsley, Italian-variety, chopped
  • 2 medium uncooked scallion(s), thinly sliced


  1. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Add coleslaw mix, apples, parsley and scallions; toss to mix and coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes for flavors to blend. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.


Chopped dill or mint, and poppy seeds would be flavorful additions to this recipe (any changes could affect PointsPlus values).
