Whats In This Honey Mustard Coleslaw Recipe?

See the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Green Cabbage: for a bright fresh crunch!
  • Red Cabbage: for a pop of extra color
  • Carrots: for sweetness and crunch
  • Walnuts
  • Greek Yogurt: I use this in the dressing instead of mayonnaise which is traditional. It lightens up the coleslaw a bit and gives it a delicious flavor (not to mention extra protein!).  You can use regular, homemade, or a vegan version for plant-based.
  • Yellow Mustard: I used the classic prepared yellow mustard for a vinegar-y kick
  • Whole Grain Mustard – for a really nice flavor and texture, you can use either whole grain mustard, stone ground, or Dijon… I’d stay clear from yellow prepared mustard for this recipe.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar, which may surprise you but it gives the cookies a little extra tang which is really fantastic! I love using apple cider vinegar with the mother which has a great flavor.
  • Raw Honey: raw honey for a bit of sweetness.   Maple syrup would also be a delicious substitute for a vegan option!
  • Salt & Pepper

Naturally Sweet Coleslaw – No Sugar Added!

I used raw honey in this recipe instead of traditional sugar. We have tons of raw honey straight from our beehives.   It’s one of the benefits to beekeeping!  We keep a few jars of honey each year for ourselves, but mostly give away what we ave to our friends and family.

Last year we were able to harvest 3 times during the summer and fall, and I sold a lot of my honey at work too.  Its my favorite natural sweetener for sure!
