Ever since I was a kid, I’ve enjoyed traditional BBQ faire, and coleslaw was always my favorite. But then when I learned that it’s a mayo based dressing and LOADED with fat, calories and cholesterol, I was disappointed.
As a Weight Watchers member, I knew that I’d have to seriously limit my coleslaw intake. I’ve tried experimenting with other coleslaw recipes that I’ve found on popular diet recipes websites, but they were all pretty yucky. Then, after I discovered the awesomeness of Veganaise,I decided to attempt using it a traditional Southern coleslaw recipe. I also decided to cut the mayo in half and use plain, nonfat Greek yogurt in place of that extra mayo.
For extra crunch and nutrients, I used Trader Joe’s Organic Broccoli Slaw (which is just shredded broccoli stems and carrots) instead of cabbage. It was AMAZING!! Tastes just like traditional coleslaw, but a LOT healthier. Each large serving is just 2 Points! You can also make this with cabbage too…the Points wont change. It’s just primarily the coleslaw dressing recipe that makes the difference.
This is definitely a Weight Watchers Coleslaw Recipe that you’ll make again and again.
This quick and healthy coleslaw recipe is nothing short of delicious, yet very low in Weight Watchers Points. Treat yourself to a coleslaw that tastes so good, it’s hard to believe it’s low calorie.
