  • 2 tablespoons low fat buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon low fat milk
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise no added sweeteners (Duke’s is a favorite for this recipe)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 head cabbage chopped
  • 1 bok choy stalk leaves removed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper diced
  • 1 carrot small, peeled and shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add the first 5 ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth. Place slaw dressing in a glass jar with a lid, and refrigerate until ready to use, chilling for approximately 2 hours.
  • Coarsely chop cabbage and bok choy; if using a food processor, add small chunks, being careful not to overpulse, as this will make it mushy. Combine in a large mixing bowl, the cabbage, bok choy, bell pepper, and carrot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add slaw dressing to cabbage mix; stir to combine, cover, and refrigerate until ready to eat.


Tip: Cole slaw is always best eaten on the same day as prepared.

    I am unclear on what to do with the bok choy, are you supposed to use the leaves or the stalks?

      Becky, For Bok Choy discard the stalk and use the leaf/leaves.
