Coleslaw Raita With Mint Photo: Jonny Valiant; Stylist: Alistair Turnball/Pat Bates and Associates


  • 2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely minced
  • 1/4 cup finely minced mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup walnut pieces, lightly toasted and finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 4 cups packaged coleslaw mix


In a large bowl, combine yogurt, garlic, mint, honey, sea salt, and pepper; mix well with a whisk. Stir in walnut pieces, dried cranberries, and coleslaw mix. Toss until thoroughly combined.

    Mint and honey add unique flavors to this coleslaw and toasted walnuts a crunchy nuttiness. We also love the tangy sweetness from dried cranberries.
  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
