Judging by the popularity of my No Mayo Broccoli Salad, you guys (or at least a lot of you) want recipes with creamy dressings minus the mayo. If mayo is not your thing, but creamy, CRUNCHY coleslaw is, then this Creamy No Mayo Coleslaw with Apple is the recipe for you!

We love this coleslaw as a topping for BBQ pulled pork or chicken sandwiches, and we also like to serve it as a side dish when we’re grilling. It can be tempting to pick up some ready-made coleslaw at the grocery store, but once you try this version with the homemade dressing you won’t want to go back!

Feel free to save a few minutes by buying a bag of pre-shredded cabbage if you like. Sometimes I do, but this time I decided to shred my own. It took just a few minutes, and here’s a step-by-step photo tutorial of the easiest way to do it:

The first time I made this coleslaw, I shredded the apple in my food processor. I had the food processor out since I used it to grate the carrots, so I figured I’d use it for the apple as well to save time. Well, the finely grated apple turned brown within a matter of minutes. Let’s just say it didn’t look all that appetizing. Time for plan B.

I’ve been using chopped apples in lots of make ahead salads lately, and tossing the apples in a bit of lemon juice prevents browning. So the next time, rather than grating the apple I thinly sliced it and tossed it in a little lemon juice. Success! Even after two days the apples looked fresh. And bonus points:  the bigger slices of apple also look pretty in this Creamy No Mayo Coleslaw.

I plan to continue making this easy coleslaw recipe year-round, since it’s a delicious and side dish for so many meals. I used to not like coleslaw at all because the mayo-based dressing did not appeal. I really enjoy this Greek yogurt version, and hope you will too! Are you a coleslaw fan? What’s your favorite meal to enjoy it with? My favorite is with these Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches!
