Skinny Cole Slaw

Submitted by: SPINNYBOO

Introduction

There is no "COOKING TIME" --- it is actually "sitting in the fridge time"

A pretty basic low-calorie version of cole-slaw that will not add to your pudge...
I have made this hundreds of times over the years and it is especially a hit at BBQs and picnics.

There are tonnes of recipes on the web for low-calorie coleslaw .. this one is creamier, tasier and yummier than anyone I have found.

    This was a very tasty coleslaw! the only change I made was agave instead of the artificial sweeteners. Very tasty! - 1/7/09

    We cannot get Agave in Canada but thanks for the tip ... how much would you use?

  • Folks who made comments about the calories/servings: It's obvious she didn't enter the number servings into the calculator. This is probably more like 8-12 servings, which would make it a very low calorie (and yummy!) slaw. Especially good with pulled pork. - 5/6/12

  • is this really one serving? I mean, dont get me wrong, it's delicious, but that's a WHOLE LOT of coleslaw! - 2/14/12

    Yeh!! Finally - a recipe for ONE SERVING. Why do people always assume that if you have a weight problem you must be cooking for a big family? All the recipes for 6 to 10 servings are pointless because if you are only 1 or 2 people in the household what should you do with the leftovers? - 6/30/09
