Homemade Healthy Dry Coleslaw

I love coleslaw but I’ve never been a fan of the… creaminess, of the lashing of mayonnaise. I love the crunch and the flavour! And so I came up with my own versions – this is my recipe for “Dry” Coleslaw.. it came about when I realised I wanted to make coleslaw but had no greek yoghurt in the fridge! You can make this gluten-free and dairy-free – just check your mustard first!
