Light Cole Slaw Recipe with Greek Yogurt

Cole slaw is made with one of the strongest cancer fighting vegetables you can eat: cabbage! Just another reason to add this light and tangy recipe to your summer BBQ and family get togethers.
I admit it. I always avoided cole slaw because it just seemed too soupy for me. That and the mysterious potato salads and macaroni salads. I know. Forgive me. But they just seemed way too heavy. Over the past few years I have started giving these dishes a second chance and, wow, have I got some amazing cooks amongst my friends. Their creative ability of remaking potato or broccoli salad into a light dish with a punch of flavor astounded me (look out store bought creamy salads).
So I started playing around with cole slaw recipes. Why?
First, like I said above, the cabbage family – cruciferous – (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages) are great cancer preventers. They have anti oxidant phytonutrients. They also contain isothiocyanates and indole-3-carbinol (technical words for kick butt cancer fighters). So, how could I NOT give Cole Slaw a try?? (I also make Homemade Sauerkraut and a Sauerkraut and Kielbasa Dish).
My second reason is because my husband likes Cole Slaw a lot, especially with BBQ anything. He’s been my taste tester. We’ve tweaked a few recipes and I think I’ve found a winner!!
