Easy, Healthy Coleslaw Recipe

Barbeque season is in full swing right now. If you are looking for a healthy side dish for burgers, steaks or ribs, consider a healthy coleslaw. The recipe that’s below is very flavorful and healthy too.

Here are the instructions for making one serving, you can easily increase this to make more:
1 tablespoon lowfat or nonfat plain yogurt
1 teaspoon mayonnaise or olive oil*
 ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
A few handfuls of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots

Mix the first four ingredients in the bottom of a bowl and then add the cabbage and carrots.  I usually dress the coleslaw and serve right away. You could also let it sit a bit to let the flavor set. 
*You can actually make this without any fat. However, I think the addition of a bit of fat really adds to the flavor and smooths it out.

What is your go-to for a healthy side dish in the summer?
