When the summer months start getting extra steamy and my kitchen becomes a fortress of heat, I gravitate toward dishes made from fresh ingredients that require limited prep and come together quickly. This Horseradish Dill Slaw checks all the boxes for fresh and easy summertime prep and makes for a fantastic side dish for year-round meal planning.
A classic side with a horseradish dill kick
We rotate through several favorite cabbage slaw recipes year-round, but this Horseradish Dill Slaw has become a recent favorite because it takes advantage of all of the fresh dill that’s in season right now, elevating it with a mild horseradish kick. It’s especially great as an alternative to salad, making a great base for grilled chicken and fish, a topper for burgers and pulled pork, or a simple side for any summer BBQ.
Horseradish Dill Slaw in 5
The best part? It comes together in 5-minutes or less from start to finish. Unless I have both cabbage and carrots lying in my produce drawer that need to be used immediately, I just use a pre-shredded mix, so the only chopping that’s required is the dill.
A note for special diets
This Horseradish Dill Slaw is grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, nightshade-free and friendly for Keto and SIBO diets. If you would like to make this friendly for Paleo and Whole30 diets, you can omit the yogurt in favor of additional mayo.
Horseradish Dill Slaw
Yield 6 portions
- 14 - 17.5oz coleslaw mix (white cabbage, red cabbage, carrots)
- 1/4 cup mayo (adjust to your preference)
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt (I prefer 24-hour or lactose-free)
- 3 tbsp horseradish cream
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard (I like Edmond Fallot)
- 1 tbsp dill, chopped
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- In a large bowl, combine mayo, yogurt, horseradish cream, vinegar, and Dijon until smooth.
- Add the coleslaw mix, dill, and pepper to the bowl and combine. This is a good time to adjust the yogurt and mayo, if needed, as you will be able to see how saturated the coleslaw mix is.
Keep in mind when you are working with different sizes of coleslaw mix that you may need to adjust the yogurt or mayo in order to saturate the slaw to your liking. I've seen bags of coleslaw vary from 14-17.5oz, depending on brand.
