Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Low Sodium


1 pound cabbage
finely shredded
1 each carrots
½ cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
olive oil mayo
2 tablespoons red onion
1 teaspoon thyme
fresh minced, or 1/2 tsp dried
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon dijon mustard
teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground


Add the shredded cabbage to a large colander set in the sink or over a large bowl.

Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt, toss to coat and allow to stand for at least 2 hours, preferably 4 to 6 hours. This allows the cabbage to release it's liquid (preventing watery slaw) and create the perfect texture.

Press out the cabbage to remove as much liquid as possible and pat dry with paper toweling.

Add the grated carrot and cabbage to a large bowl.

In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, red onion, thyme, lemon juice, sugar, dijon mustard and black pepper.

Drizzle the dressing over the cabbage and carrot mixture. Toss to combine and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

One of the coleslaws we made for our company on last Saturday, they really enjoyed it. By draining the cabbage for a few hours really got rid of lots of water, which made a better taste and texture coleslaw.

We served it with homemade grilled sausages and BBQ pulled pork, a light and tasty summer side dish.
