For the slaw

  • 6 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots

For the dressing


  • In a small bowl, mix the ingredients of the dressing together.
  • Place shredded green cabbage and shredded purple cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw and toss to combine.
  • Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 4 days in the fridge. I would not recommend freezing the coleslaw.
Make Ahead Tips: You can make the dressing up to 7 days in advance, and you can also shred the cabbage and carrots up to 7 days in advance. This way, when you're ready to serve, you can just toss everything together.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of Greek yogurt, you can use plain yogurt, as long as it has 3.5% fat or higher. Don't use no-fat yogurt.
  • Instead of apple cider vinegar, you can use lemon juice or another clear or lightly colored vinegar to add the acid to the dressing.
  • Instead of maple syrup, you can use honey (make sure it's soft and runny), or you can use regular sugar or skip the sugar all together.
  • Instead of fresh garlic clove, you can use garlic powder, but I recommend fresh if possible.
