Coleslaw (Low Fat)

BBQ season is the best time of year to have parties. I especially love the garden party, formal & informal gatherings, of friends & if family are here too then I am in heaven!
I love coleslaw at any time but it is the best salad to have on a table & goes with all grilled meat.This recipe is light & fresh. I make this with low fat Mayonnaise but you can use the full fat variety if you wish
The measurements are dependant on how many servings you want, add or subtract as needed for vegetables keep the sauce amounts the same add more of individual ingredients to taste!

1/2 -1 cabbage
4 - 8 Carrots
Bunch spring onions
Low fat or fat free mayonnaise, amount according to your liking
2 tbsp Cider vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard or grainy mustard
1/2 tsp liquid sweetener or 2 tsp Sugar add more if necessary
1/2 cup plain very low fat yoghurt, full fat if wished.
2 tsp Lemon juice
Salt & Pepper
Tomato ketchup can also be added, why not split into two bowls one with ketchup & one without ;-)

Shred cabbage, carrot & chop onion. Mix together in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix together yoghurt, mustard & vinegar.
Stir well.
Add salt, pepper, lemon & sweetener.
Stir all ingredients together really well then add mayonnaise& make sure
At this point you can add the tomato ketchup.
Pour mixture over the vegetables & work it through so all the veg is covered.
It can be thinned with a little milk if necessary.
Now store covered, in the fridge over night, for the flavours to meld. It can be eaten the same day if time is short.
