Thanks. Greek yogurt instead of mayo sounds good. I'm hoping to find a good cole slaw recipe that the family will eat also - that doesn't contain mayo.

A trick I learned from America's Test Kitchen is to salt the shredded cabbage and put it in a strainer over a bowl to drain for at least an hour, then rinse it. It draws out the excess water so the cabbage stays crisp and the dressing doesn't get watery.

I've also had good luck using Greek yogurt instead of mayo if I want a creamy dressing.

Lately, I've preferred cooked cabbage over raw. Have you ever tried Napa cabbage ? You might find Napa cabbage a bit milder than red or green cabbage.

I've discovered that cabbage is good for my stomach and would love a good, preferably healthy, coleslaw recipe.
