A BBQ without cole slaw is like a sheep without a treadmill. OK, it's actually WAY worse than that (because, um, sheep don't use exercise equipment). So that's why we created this insanely DELICIOUS low-cal swap. Heeeeere ya go...
Ingredients: One 16-oz. package cole slaw mix, dry (or 6 cups shredded cabbage mixed with 1 cup shredded carrots) 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream 2 1/2 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar 1 tsp. Dijonnaise 2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda) 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt (like Lawry's) salt and pepper, to taste
Directions: To make dressing, combine mayo, sour cream, rice vinegar, Dijonnaise, sweetener, and seasoned salt. Mix well. Place cole slaw mix in a large bowl. Add dressing and stir until all of the slaw is thoroughly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. (For best flavor, make slaw the night before you plan to serve it.) Then just give it a good stir, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy! MAKES 6 SERVINGS
Isn't it a shame when something so potentially innocent ends up having a ridiculously silly number of calories and fat grams? Such is the case with cole slaw. The main ingredient in the stuff is shredded cabbage. But things go horribly wrong when that poor cabbage is mixed with oodles of fatty mayo. What sane human wants to waste almost 300 calories and more than 20 fat grams on CABBAGE? Sheesh! So whether it just shows up on your plate at the diner along with your meal or stares you down at a cookout, avoid it. Go for a green salad, fruit salad, or cut-up veggies, instead. Better yet, keep a HUGE batch of HG's Slammin' Slaw around as an anytime summer side. Our slaw also makes a fantastic take-along party dish. Yes!!!
