I have not tried this recipe. I got my copy of this recipe from Health Matters magazine.

- 3 cups shredded cabbage

- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- Chill until ready to serve.
- For fun with older kids, you can garnish each serving with a plastic spider.
This gets 5 stars immediately when the DM gobbles up vegetables without coaxing and laid claim to the left overs. I did a half recipe and is was plenty as a side to Nutty Cheese Tortellini for 3 of us with a serve left over. Personally I did find the vanilla yoghurt (very low fat) a little sweet and for myself I would tend to use a natural yoghurt but then the DM has a sweet tooth so it suited her to a tee and the DS and I still enjoyed. Thank you internetnut, made for Everyday a Holiday.
This is a nice change to the standard slaw recipe. I wish there was a bit more apple flavor - I think it was definitely overpowered by the cabbages so next time I'm going to add another apple and also use maybe a tarter apple with more flavor so it can be tasted over the other strong flavors. Overall though it comes together perfectly in a healthy fashion. Made for "An Apple A Day" Photo Tag in the Photo Forum Oct. 2009
