I have always wanted to try slaw with apples but I am not into that tangy vinegar taste combined with sweetness. I was, however, all about trying something new and mixing up some flavors. I bought this new Greek yogurt that was coconut flavored and very thick. I thought this would hold up great in the slaw. I could cut the mayo by half at least and still pack tons of flavor in there. This sounds good so far, right? Coconut, apples, cabbage, and mmmm-mmmm cranberries for something a little sweet but keeping with the tartness of the granny smith. It went perfect as a side and even my finicky slaw eating mother liked it. Yes I said finicky, and I meant it. As for the rest of us easy to please people, we loved it and hope you will too.


You will need:

  • 1/2 of a head of a medium size cabbage
  • 2 granny smith apples sliced thin (not paper thin just thin)
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 container 6oz 150g of coconut greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs of sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 of a lemon or 2 tbs of lemon juice

First thing is get your cabbage sliced and diced, chopped and plopped into bowl. Why am I rhyming? Ok, put the cabbage into a large bowl.

cslaw3clsaw4Place into the bowl with your cabbage. Take 1/4 of a lemon and squeeze over the apples so they keep their nice color.

cslaw5Next, add your dried cranberries.

cslaw6The entire container of the coconut yogurt.

cslaw8Next in goes the mayo.

cslaw10Stir the ingredients together until well blended. Lastly, add in your sugar, dash of salt and pepper.

cslaw11 Top off with some cranberries for garnish.


There you have it… a very easy but sweet crunchy slaw. I also thought walnuts would go wonderful in this as well but alas I am walnutless. Is that a word? It is now!  A great side item for any night of the week. It went really well with my Chicken Gyros!
