Citrus Cole Slaw

During the hot weather this summer, I craved some cool crunchy salad recipes.  I found this on Pinterest and the original recipe is from Family Fun Magazine.  I didn’t have any Granny Smith apples so I used carrots in place of them.  This slaw is really good, but the dressing needs a little something.  I think I will add a little kosher salt and more Greek yogurt next time and see if that will amp up the flavor.

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup plain yogurt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

8 ounces coleslaw mix (I had a head of fresh cabbage from my co-worker’s garden so I used that.)

1 cup shredded carrots

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup red seedless grapes, halved


Combine the first 6 ingredients to make the dressing.


Shred your cabbage or use pre-shredded mix and combine that with the carrots, celery and grapes.  Pour the dressing over the veggie/fruit mixture and toss to completely cover.  The color of this slaw is really vibrant and pretty.  It just needs a little more flavor.
