Recipe: Confetti Crunch Coleslaw with Creamy Lemon Caper Dressing

A healthy, crunchy slaw that's made with cabbage, scallions, carrots, and sweet peppers and tossed with a tangy lemon caper dressing (recipe here).

If you like coleslaw but are tired of the same old mayo-heavy recipes, this colorful, flavor-packed Confetti Coleslaw with Creamy Lemon Caper Dressing will liven and lighten things up.

Made with yogurt, lots of Dijon mustard, and much less mayonnaise than many traditional slaw recipes, it goes well with all sorts of summer meals and is perfect for bringing to potlucks, picnics, backyard barbecues, and buffet parties. I like to keep it on hand in the fridge for a healthy snack or the fastest dinner salad ever and have even eaten it for breakfast. It always gets rave reviews whenever I serve it.

The tangy lemon caper dressing can be quickly mixed up a day or two ahead of time, and it also makes a tasty dip. The coleslaw can be fully assembled a day in advance and refrigerated, or you can keep the dressing and prepared vegetables separate, then toss everything together before serving.

Hit the farmer's market for fresh homegrown vegetables and this easy recipe will really shine. You won't believe how much flavor plain old raw cabbage can have.
