A Delicious Creamy Low Syn Coleslaw that makes the perfect side dish for grilled meats and barbecues.
Homemade coleslaw is so easy to make, and you don't even have to chop up all that veg, most grocery stores sell bags of ready made coleslaw mix, which is usually a blend or raw shredded cabbage and carrots.
I like the addition of red onion in mine, as it adds great flavour, so I also slice up some red onion very thinly and mix that in too.
I like to use a reduced fat olive oil mayonnaise as it's flavour is just as good as the regular stuff but for much less syns. Mixed with yogurt, lemon juice and a little maple syrup and seasoning I really don't notice the difference from the ready made creamy coleslaw you can buy.
Perfect side for grilled meats, barbecues, picnics and more. I love some with my KFC Fakeaway Feast
Also for variation you can add some curry powder, or skip the maple syrup and add in some grated apple instead for the sweetness.
