Coleslaw with a mint, yogurt and dill dressing

One of the things I prefer not to buy is packaged coleslaw because I find the texture way to soft for my liking.  Green cabbage is really inexpensive and there are endless combinations of ingredients to make a great dressing, and plus homemade seems to taste better. This slaw is similar to the yogurt dill slaw I made recently (recipe here) but with a tangy dressing with mint, dill, yellow mustard and capers.

Look out for many more salad recipes to come.

* If you have other vegetables/fruits, feel free to add it to the salad.

½ cabbage-thinly sliced (can use a mandolin)
5 mint leaves-finely chopped
A few mint leaves for garnish

2 cups of Greek yogurt (I used non-fat)
A pinch of salt and black pepper
¼ cup of finely chopped dill
A large squirt of yellow mustard (I used French’s)
6 capers and a splash of the caper brine
Drizzle of olive oil

Preparation Work:
1. Cut the vegetables according to instructions

2. Make the dressing: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Taste and adjust as needed.

Assembling steps:

1. Place all vegetables in a bowl and add the dressing. Mix well.
