Lower-Fat Coleslaw

Rated as 4.16 out of 5 Stars
5

"I've been trying to create a coleslaw dressing with the lowest possible fat intake. This is as low as I could go without taking away the flavor. It's a family favorite and we use it with all kinds of meals, in wraps, in sandwiches, with burgers, and as a side during BBQs."

This was good for a lower fat, healthier option. I didn't add the milk (didn't have any), but still coated the cabbage lightly. I agree with other reviewers that you need to add some other sea...

Absolutely FABULOUS!

Seemed like way too much salt to me. It was good otherwise and I love a low fat option. I'd definitely make it again, just with way less salt.

Surprisingly good. I like it as good as any other recipe for coleslaw, if not better. Better, because I can't taste any guilt! I use regular mayo and whole milk. I mean, come one, it's 2...

Very dry if made exactly step by step, we added four more tablespoons of mayo (low fat) and it was moist then with an extra sprinkle of sugar to cut the tartness, but otherwise great

I modified this a bit by using plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise and did not use any milk. It was good. Next time I will add more seasoning to it

really awesome! I didn't have lemon juice, but it turned out amazing. Love how the flavors mix with the cabbage!
