But there is still hope for those of us who crave the creamy version. Since the mayonnaise is the culprit, that's the ingredient to replace. By combining a reduced-fat mayo with Greek nonfat yogurt, you maintain the coleslaw's creamy texture and a bit of the mayonnaise flavor. If the end result is too tangy, however, add a little sugar to balance it out.To make this coleslaw dressing even quicker, use a seasoning mix such as Penzey's buttermilk ranch seasoning. This coleslaw is great with barbecue or any grilled food. The cold creaminess is great up against hot BBQ spices. Ingredients 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise 2/3 cup Greek nonfat yogurt 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt Sugar to taste, optional 1 pound cabbage, shredded, or 1 bag coleslaw mix Preparation Mix the mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice, and seasonings together in a liquid measuring cup. Taste and balance the lemon juice, salt, and sugar to your own taste.Place the cabbage in a large bowl and pour over the dressing. You may want to mix half of the cabbage and dressing at a time to make it easier.Other Healthy BBQ Side DishesA backyard barbecue isn't complete without a variety of side dishes.
