    This coleslaw dressing recipe is a healthy twist on a summer favorite. Made with nonfat Greek yogurt and tasty spices like paprika and chili pepper, you will love this lighter take on classic coleslaw dressing.

    In general, coleslaw salads are a staple at summer gatherings. This is because the cool mix of crunchy veggies is a pleasant addition to otherwise warm dishes like burgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob.

    Traditional coleslaw salads, however, are typically dressed in heavy coleslaw dressings made with mayonnaise. Any nutritional benefits that the veggies offer are diminished by all the fat from the mayonnaise.

    Instead, this healthy coleslaw dressing utilizes nonfat Greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise. Other ingredients like Dijon mustard, honey, spices, and lemon juice make this dressing finger-licking good.

    Pour this coleslaw dressing over your favorite mix of veggies and fruits, and watch how amazed you and your family will be at just how much you love eating your daily serving of fresh vegetables and fruit!
