Mayo-Less Coleslaw

I was selected recently to be a #MorrisonsMum and hubs and I went to our nearest Morrisons supermarket to buy the food for our Bank Holiday Monday Family BBQ, I promised I would share all the recipes, so here is my recipe for Mayo-Less Coleslaw.

Instead of the usual mayonnaise to make the coleslaw dressing, I used Greek yogurt and red wine vinegar. I always use both red and white cabbage in my slaw too – adds a lovely colour depth to the salad.

I’ve decided (since I’m on a diet) that I’ll be including the calorie count for each dish which I’ve worked out using the labels on the food packaging and other online resources.

I’m also including how much each dish costs to make using the ingredients I bought from Morrisons. Added ingredients such as herbs, spices and olive oil etc are not included as I figure most of us have those sorts of things in our store cupboard (I know I do!)

  • ½ small red cabbage shredded
  • ½ small white cabbage shredded
  • 2-3 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • For the dressing
  • 4 tbsps Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsps red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsps olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Place all the prepared vegetables into a bowl.
  2. Make the dressing by whisking together the yoghurt, vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and stir well to combine.
  4. Chill until required.


The red and white cabbage were 48p and 39p – I only used half of each. A few tablespoons of Greek yoghurt from a huge 1kg tub, which was £2, plus a few carrots, onions, olive oil and red wine vinegar (store cupboard staples for us!) This is one cheap salad! Probably about a quid for the whole dish!


I didn’t weigh a single thing, so working out the cals here is a tricky one – sorry!
