  • 4 cups of shredded green cabbage
  • 2 cups of shredded red cabbage
  • 2 medium apples, thinly sliced (choose your favorite variety)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)


For the dressing, you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt (non-fat or low-fat)
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preparation: Begin by preparing the vegetables and apples. Shred the green and red cabbage, and thinly slice the apples. You can use a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife for this task. Also, shred the carrots using a grater.
  2. Combine: In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded green cabbage, red cabbage, sliced apples, and shredded carrots. Toss the ingredients together until evenly distributed.
  3. Dressing Preparation: In a small bowl, whisk together the plain Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, honey or maple syrup, and Dijon mustard until smooth and well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Coating: Pour the dressing over the cabbage and apple mixture. Use a spatula or spoon to gently coat the ingredients with the dressing, ensuring everything is evenly coated.
  5. Chilling: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the coleslaw for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. This chilling time also helps to soften the cabbage slightly, enhancing the texture of the coleslaw.
  6. Final Touch: Before serving, give the coleslaw a final toss to ensure the dressing is evenly distributed. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
  7. Serving: Serve the Apple Coleslaw as a refreshing side dish alongside your favorite main course. It pairs beautifully with grilled chicken, fish, or as a topping for tacos and sandwiches.
