Healthify Your Summer with Fage! Recipe 2: FAGE Total Greek Yogurt Lemon Coleslaw

My apologies for skipping last week, the Healthify Your Summer with Fage Total Greek Yogurt Series continues with the second recipe in the summer series! This time with another summer favorite, Coleslaw! Just like it took me a long time to embrace Yogurt just in general, I didn't always eat ColeSlaw and when I was little was known to pick it out when I went to KFC!  It was last year at BlogHer 2010 that I tried a Yogurt that I really liked, and have begn experimenting with other brands since. The event I attended where we learned to use Yogurt in our favorite recipes to make them healthier, still surprises me. For someone that never really ate Yogurt, I was surprised that cooking with it, yielded that much flavor, and in many recipes I couldn't really tell it was there at all. This ColeSlaw was a very pleasant surprise!

FAGE (pronounced “fah-yeh”) is known for Total, the authentic Greek strained yogurt. This summer, Ascending Butterfly and FAGE Total takes you on a mouthwatering journey from plainly plain to plain extraordinary!

FTC Disclosure Information: I attended a hands on cooking session at the International Culinary Council as a guest of Fage Total Yogurt, I was taught how to make the recipes I am sharing on my blog, I am under no obligation to do so. This is a non-compensated post. This is a non-sponsored post. As someone who has shed 26 pounds via lifestyle changes, I love to share those tips and tricks with my readers!


  1. My word. That looks SO. GOOD. I, too, was not a fan of coleslaw as a child. To this DAY I do not understand what anyone sees in the KFC coleslaw. Anyway, I've been experimenting with my own recipes, and this one seems right up my alley. I absolutely LOVE greek yogurt. I don't even bother with sour cream anymore.

  2. @Bellesouth - And the taste is phenomenal! It was my first time ever making it, because I rarely eat it! There was this obscure off the wall restaurant in Atlantic City that made really good slaw, and when they closed down, I just stopped eating it. (Ok you can inser the DOH, I should have asked for their recipe at some point and tried to make my own). Honestly the taste on this recipe is so good you will not detect the Yogurt substitution! I've already slipped this one to my niece and nephews and they had no idea there was any substitution, just why I hadn't made it sooner!
