My favorite flavor profiles include something spicy with either sweet or salty. Yogurt Pineapple Coleslaw combine the best of both of those worlds in a healthy and bright way!
Yogurt Pineapple Coleslaw is a delicious homemade coleslaw that you can have ready in just 10 minutes. Unlike your typical coleslaw, this no mayo coleslaw uses greek yogurt to switch things up a bit!
Coleslaw is traditionally prepared with a mayonnaise or buttermilk based dressing. In Yogurt Pineapple Coleslaw I used plain Greek Yogurt, pineapple and serrano pepper to dress up usual ho-hum slaw. While I usually buy pre-packaged coleslaw mix to make my life a little easier, you can certainly shred your own.
I know making coleslaw at home seems like it would be tedious when you can go to the store and easily buy a tub of coleslaw. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that it only takes 10 minutes or less to make this appetizing side dish!
No joke, this comes together in just under 10 minutes, including your chopping time! Crazy right?! If I don’t have a serrano pepper, or want to make the prep time even shorter, I substitute a teaspoon of crushed red pepper. It’s the perfect side dish to make and take to a bbq or throw together to pair with a weeknight meal!
Weird question to bring up but can you freeze homemade coleslaw? I was wondering this myself so I checked it out and you’re in luck with this recipe. Since this Yogurt Pineapple Coleslaw is made with greek yogurt and not mayonnaise, it’s the perfect coleslaw to freeze.
Basically you can freeze your coleslaw as long as it doesn’t have mayonnaise in it. With that said, that’s even if there is anything left of this Yogurt Pineapple Coleslaw by the end. I have a feeling that there won’t be, but just in case now you know that tip!
