This Greek Yogurt coleslaw recipe is a high protein take on a classic summer BBQ side dish – it’s a creamy coleslaw with vinegar, spices, and yogurt. Great coleslaw for BBQs, potlucks, and parties. It’s great on a plate loaded up with anything coming off the grill, or also fantastic to add to a BBQ meat or lentil sloppy joe

Summer is right around the corner, and I cannot wait to make this Greek yogurt coleslaw on repeat for our outdoor gatherings this year!  The trees are full of leaves, our garden is starting to sprout, and our bees are making their way out of the hives. Summer is almost here, and this is one simple BBQ side dish recipe worth saving!

I come from a coleslaw family – no BBQ, party, or cookout was ever without coleslaw growing up. I wanted to make a healthier version (no mayo or sour cream) and Greek Yogurt brings amazing flavor and creaminess to this dish. You can use any plain unsweetened Greek Yogurt, which is delicious folded into this slaw.

A No-Cook Coleslaw Recipe That’s Perfect for Summer

This no-cook Greek Yogurt coleslaw is a quick and simple recipe.  I love a good no-cook recipe for those days when I’m not feeling like standing around the stove, or for summer nights when it’s too hot to cook. I have a whole collection of recipes that require zero cooking at all, check them out here!  This coleslaw comes together in about 15 minutes, and doesn’t require the stove or microwave to make. Just use a few pantry staple ingredients and you have a healthy meal ready in no time.  And very little to clean up afterwards… an added bonus!

I made this the other day and when I tasted it and I actually danced  because it was that good!  Even tasting it fresh (before letting it sit for a few hours) was amazing.  The tartness from the white balsamic and the tang from the yogurt was perfect with the cabbage.
