Creamy Light ColeslawSubmitted by: FITNESSFOODIE
IntroductionI love creamy coleslaw with BBQ and tried every kind without mayo but kept coming missing the creaminess. This one satisfies my cravings! I shredd the cabbage myself and find it tastes so much fresher than buying the pre-shredded bagged variety. Try it and see.

1 small head of cabbage, shredded
1/2 small head of purple cabbage, shredded
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup fat free mayo
2 Tbs red wine vinegar
water, as needed to thin consistency
1 Tbs poppy seeds
salt & pepper to taste
In a small bowl combine dressing ingredients except for water. Whisk together and add water 1 Tbs at a time until it's the desired consistency, you may not use it all. Taste and season with salt & pepper if desired.
Pour dressing over cabbage blend and toss well. You should taste very fresh and crunchy cabbage with a light creaminess from the dressing. It will not be a "wet" coleslaw.
Serving Size: Makes 8 to 12 side dish servings.
Number of Servings: 8

This was wonderful. I made it the night before a big cookout and stuck it in the fridge. It was still crispy and creamy the next afternoon. The only change I made was I used the bag of already shredded cabbage, added a touch more red wine vinegar, and celery seed with the poppy seed. Awesome!! - 7/18/11
Thank you from me too, Karen! Coleslaw was one of the last things on my 'do not like' list. Your coleslaw is exactly the type that made me start liking it. I'm headed to the store tomorrow to pick up the cabbage. Glad it includes one of my favorite things, red wine vinegar. YUM! - 4/10/11
