Creamy Yogurt Vinegar Coleslaw

by Tickled Red on July 9, 2012 · 133 comments

Welcome to Part Two- Side Dishes in our Summer Braise~ BBQ & Beyond Series where Meredith, Kristen and I share our love of barbecue and beyond as it means to us in our various regions of the US.

Cookouts wouldn’t be the same without a helping of crisp fresh slaw. How could you not have some crunchy tart cabbage on your plate to lend a little bit of balance to your lip smacking, juice dripping, finger licking BBQ. In most diners, fish houses or cafes up and down the coast of North Carolina, you will find coleslaw on your plate. If not it will at the very least be a side option on the menu. What I find fascinating are the many variations that you will come across.

Some people like their slaw sweet, some doused in vinegar sauce, others like it simple with only mayo contributing a bit of flavor. Personally, I prefer my slaw simple as well as healthy and tart rather than sweet. Creamy Greek yogurt adds just the right amount of tang to my coleslaw without it being overkill.

However, there are a couple of other ingredients, which might surprise some of you…Creole mustard and garlic. Yep, a pinch of these along with the Greek yogurt will have your guests pleasantly wondering what you did differently with your slaw.

Oh and don’t forget the vinegar! Only a cap full though, no more than that.

Don’t you want to run a finger through that creamy healthy fresh coleslaw dressing I know I do?

Be sure and pop over and check out Meredith’s Chipotle & Lime Roasted Potatoes and Kristen’s Baked Mac and Cheese for some more scrumptious summer side dish ideas.

Hugs & Kisses,

Shari-Tickled Red


Yogurt Vinaigrette ColeslawServes approx. 8-10


1/2 head cabbage, thinly sliced

1/2 cup red onion, finely diced

1/2 teaspoon mashed garlic (use a garlic press)

1/2 teaspoon Creole mustard

1 cap white wine vinegar

1 cup Greek yogurt

salt & pepper to taste


First core and half a head of cabbage. Thinly slice the cabbage, cutting on the shorter end to ensure smaller pieces. In a large mixing bowl combine sliced cabbage and diced red onion, set aside.

In a small mixing bowl whisk together creole mustard, garlic, vinegar and Greek yogurt. Salt and pepper to taste.

Toss yogurt vinaigrette dressing with cabbage and onions until completely coated.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

One of my favorite sides, besides potato salad, is a corn dish I make. I don’t have this on my blog so I will share it with you’s easy. 3 cans of drained corn, 1 package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of grated parm cheese and 2 T. of melted butter. Stir and bake for 20 minutes at 350. It will leave you wanting to eat the whole dish, or maybe that is just me…LOL ENJOY and thanks for the contest!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen July 9, 2012 at 7:10 pm

I’m with you, I like my slaws with yogurt instead of mayo but I go a little heavy handed with the vinegar. I like to make a slaw with different root veggies like carrots and beets as a nice bbq side.

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen July 9, 2012 at 7:11 pm

amy marantino July 9, 2012 at 7:45 pm

my new fave side dish is quinoa tabbouleh! so easy and delish!

Sharon July 9, 2012 at 10:34 pm

I like to do potato hobo packs–diced potatoes with onion, butter, and a little cream wrapped in aluminum foil and cooked on the grill along side the main course.

Your cole slaw looks super good too! Thanks.

Sharon July 9, 2012 at 10:34 pm
domestic diva July 9, 2012 at 11:17 pm

My favorite side dish for BBQs is mac and cheese topped with buttery seasoned breadcrumbs. YUM!

Judith July 10, 2012 at 9:06 am

Favorite side is Tangy Potato Salad. I didn’t like mayo until I discovered Duke’s Mayonnaise – don’t know if it’s available everywhere in U.S. – but I highly recommend it if you can find. Don’t know their secret ingredient(s) but it’s just tastier and different from Hellman’s, etc.

Will definitely try this cole slaw with yogurt. Thanks for sharing.

Tickled Red July 18, 2012 at 12:39 pm

MmmMmm, sounds delish! LOL…girl we love Duke’s. In the south it’s numero uno :D

Miss McBooty July 10, 2012 at 9:08 am

What a dream giveaway! I came over here from Dine and Dish. You have wonderful looking recipes.

My favorite BBQ side dish? Mayo-free Tuscan pasta salad. It keeps well in warm temperatures and it just gets more and more flavorful the longer it sits. Plus, as an added bonus, I toss in any farmer’s market haul I have.

I also tweeted this contest on Twitter. Thanks!

Laura S. July 10, 2012 at 9:30 am

Janet Martin July 12, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Looks delicious, but my current obsession is bleu cheese coleslaw–thinly sliced cabbage tossed with bleu cheese dressing and extra crumbles, keeping the total dish on the dry side.

ShannonLC July 12, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Great Giveaway! Baked beans in tinfoil on the grill is my favorite with a BBQ!!!

Lindsay M July 12, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I love to make a peach and tomato quinoa salad. Cook the quinoa in chicken broth with a few sprigs of fresh thyme. On the side, saute tomatoes and peaches with a bit of garlic. The tomatoes and peaches will reduce and just pour the liquid over the quinoa. Add some fresh basil or mint at the end and it’s delicious!
