Clean Eating Coleslaw


Remember those Sweet and Smokey Turkey Burger I posted at the beginning of the week?

Well this is the recipe that I served them with; a super simple, super lite coleslaw.

What makes this coleslaw so lite you ask?  Well that my friends, is all about the Greek yogurt.

It’s no secret these days that Greek yogurt is a great way to lighten up just about any recipe that calls for mayo or sour cream.  It’s already strained, so most of the water is drained out leaving us with a very rich and creamy yogurt that is thick enough to coat the cabbage in this slaw.

Now if you wanted to ease your way into this clean eating slaw, you could certainly do a 50/50 combo of the yogurt and some mayo.  This is a great option for anyone who wants to keep it light but isn’t not 100% ready to give up their mayo (which I completely relate to and often travel this road myself).
