Coleslaw with Greek Yogurt


My boyfriend and I got together with some friends last weekend. We went out for a few drinks on the water, and came back to have pulled pork that he’d had in the slow cooker all day. I offered to bring slaw to go with the pulled pork, and I also brought the cheese spaetzle to reheat.

I typically don’t care for Greek yogurt, and it’s definitely not what I’d pick to eat with my breakfast in the morning. I’ve discovered that plain Greek yogurt is great for making dressings. It adds a nice tang to dressing. I’m also very picky about my coleslaw. This is probably going to be my new go-to slaw recipe. I’m always afraid my slaw is going to be bland, or the flavors won’t work out well together, but this was just the opposite! I packed it with leftover pulled pork in my lunch this week.

  • 7 oz plain Greek yogurt
