This Greek Style Cole Slaw has always been one of my all-time favorite cole slaw recipes.  I really love the tangy flavor, and the addition of feta cheese and pepperoncini.  It’s delicious!

When you think of cole slaw, this is probably not the type of cole slaw you’re thinking of.  This is a non-mayo based cole slaw.  It utilizes a light vinaigrette instead.

How do you make Greek Style Cole Slaw?

You’ll start off by buying one of those bags of cole slaw mix that you can find near the other bagged lettuce in your market’s produce section.  A cole slaw mix usually consists of shredded green cabbage, a few shreds of purple cabbage and shredded carrot.

The cole slaw mix is tossed with a simple red wine vinaigrette.  Feta cheese crumbles, red onion and pepperoncini are mixed in too.  This Greek Style Cole Slaw has some great Greek style flavors!

This is a nice, light cole slaw recipe.  I like to give it a little time to marinate in the refrigerator before serving. The flavor will be a little stronger since the cabbage will have a chance to absorb some of vinaigrette.

If you happen to be following the Weight Watchers Freestyle Points program, a serving of this Greek Style Cole Slaw will cost you 2 points.  It’s so much better for you than a cole slaw that is soaked with a mayonnaise dressing.

    Hello Lori,

    I can’t seem to access some of your recipe videos. Is there something wrong with it or is it just me?

    I used a 16oz package of coleslaw, the dressing needs to be doubled to cover this amount. I used mixed olives with feta that I picked up at the olive bar. I crumbled the feta, chopped the olives and fortunately the mix had enough oil to cover for the lack of dressing amount. Turned out to be very good. Took it to work with a grilled chicken breast for lunch.

    Is this better if you make it ahead and let it sit overnight? I need a good side that I can make a day ahead without losing flavor or quality.

      Can you prepare it and then toss it with the dressing the day of serving?
