As it’s summer in the UK, everyone is in barbecue mode! And why not? Who doesn’t love grilled chicken and veg in the garden? But sometimes I get a bit bored with a simple salad on the side with a lonely baked potato.
So I decided to make coleslaw but a healthy version of it. I didn’t have the guts to make it with a bucket full of mayonnaise. My waist line is already growing from all the baking, but that’s another issue.
This coleslaw is made with zero fat yoghurt, a teaspoon of mayonnaise (because I couldn’t ignore it) and dijon mustard. Its so simple! Add all these ingredients in a big bowl and season with salt and pepper. I bought a white cabbage and chopped it finely, then grated a couple of carrots and finely chopped half a red onion. I mixed this in with the yogurt mixture and sprinkled in some fresh chives.
I can honestly say that it tastes so much better than the shop bought coleslaw and you feel less guilty afterwards! It’s great for lunch or a side at dinner. Now I don’t have to force myself to burn it off afterwards. Although I should burn off that chocolate mousse I had…
