For the Coleslaw:
- 2 cups shredded cabbage (green and/or purple)
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion (red or white)
- 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
For the Dressing:
- 2 tablespoons plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1-2 drops of liquid stevia (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
- Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare the Vegetables:
- Wash and finely shred the cabbage using a sharp knife or a food processor. You can use green cabbage, purple cabbage, or a combination for colour and variety.
- Thinly slice the onion and chop the cucumber and celery into small pieces.
Make the Dressing:
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, liquid stevia, celery seed, salt, and pepper. Adjust the sweetness with stevia to your preference.
Combine and Toss:
- In a large mixing bowl, add the shredded cabbage, sliced onion, chopped cucumber, and chopped celery.
- Pour the dressing over the vegetables.
- Gently toss the coleslaw until the vegetables are evenly coated with the dressing. Ensure that the dressing reaches all parts of the coleslaw for a consistent flavour.
Chill and Serve:
- Refrigerate the coleslaw for at least 15-30 minutes before serving. Chilling allows the flavours to meld together.
