Colorful Coleslaw–Use the veggies in the recipe, OR whatever you have in your fridge! This salad cuts the calories from those in regular slaws by making the dressing with a combination of yogurt and light mayonnaise. I’ve tested it on  my family, friends, clients and a weight management class–all gave it a thumbs up!
