This Apple Cabbage Slaw gets its creaminess from plain low fat yogurt instead of high fat dressing, while vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and a sweet apple give it loads of crunchy flavor.

Tips & Notes
The yogurt section in many grocery stores seems to have overtaken the dairy aisle. It’s getting harder to find traditional dairy foods like cottage cheese and sour cream that are being crowded by yogurt.
But it only makes sense that a food with as many health benefits as yogurt be given prime real estate in the supermarket.
Yogurt is healthy for you. It comes from milk so yogurt eaters will get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium and magnesium.
But one of the words we’re hearing more and more of regarding yogurt is “probiotics”. Probiotics are “friendly bacteria” that are naturally present in the digestive system. Live strains of these “good bacteria” also are found in many yogurt products. While more research needs to be done, there’s some evidence that some strains of probiotics can help boost the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract.
The health benefits of yogurt are so impressive that many health-conscious people make it a daily habit. And each year, more and more research is published adding insight into the health benefits from eating yogurt.
While more study is needed, there’s some evidence that yogurt with active cultures may help certain gastrointestinal conditions, including:
• Lactose intolerance
• Constipation
• Diarrhea
• Colon cancer
• Inflammatory bowel disease
• H. pylori infection
