  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise $0.44
  • 1/3 cup Greek style plain yogurt $0.32
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar $0.06
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey $0.12
  • 1/2 tsp salt $0.02
  • 1 small head purple cabbage (about 1.5 lbs.) $1.34
  • 1 large carrot $0.12
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple $0.78
  • 1/3 cup raisins $0.60


  • Prepare the dressing by stirring together the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, honey, and salt.
  • Remove the core from the cabbage, then shred the leaves into very thin strips. Peel the carrot, then shred it using a large holed cheese grater. Wash the apple well, slice it in half, then remove the core with a melon baller or sharp spoon. Use the cheese grater to shred the apple. Press the shredded apple between a couple pieces of paper towel to absorb the excess juice.
  • Place the shredded cabbage, carrot, apple, and raisins in a large bowl. Add the dressing over top, then stir until everything is evenly coated in dressing. Serve immediately.


Using a 50/50 mix of mayonnaise and Greek yogurt keeps the dressing creamy, but light. You can change the ratio, but it will change the flavor and texture of the dressing. I used light mayo and low fat Greek yogurt and the flavor was still great.
