Greek Yogurt Coleslaw Recipe

Greek Yogurt Coleslaw Recipe

The origin of Greek yogurt coleslaw is a fusion of traditional coleslaw, which is a popular salad in Western cuisine, and Greek cuisine, which often incorporates yogurt into various dishes.
Coleslaw itself has its roots in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands and England. The term "coleslaw" is derived from the Dutch word "koolsla," which means "cabbage salad." Dutch settlers brought it to the United States in the 17th century and has since become a staple side dish.
On the other hand, Greek cuisine is known for its extensive use of yogurt in various recipes. Greek yogurt is a thick, creamy yogurt that undergoes a straining process to remove the whey, resulting in a tangy and rich product. It is commonly used as a base for dips, dressings, and desserts in Greek cooking.
The combination of these two culinary influences gave rise to the Greek yogurt coleslaw recipe. By substituting mayonnaise with Greek yogurt in the traditional coleslaw dressing, it adds a creamy and tangy element while reducing the fat content. This healthier twist has gained popularity among those seeking a lighter alternative to the traditional coleslaw dressing.
Greek yogurt coleslaw is a refreshing and nutritious side dish in various parts of the world.

Ingredients for Greek Yogurt Coleslaw:

1 small head of cabbage, finely shredded
2 medium carrots, grated
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
