This light, creamy dressing is great not only on cabbage and coleslaw, but also on salads and fresh vegetables, like cucumbers.


1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons (or more) fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lime peel
2 tablespoons honey
1 serrano chile, seeded, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, minced
8 cups thinly sliced green (or Napa) cabbage
4 green onions, minced
salt and pepper


Whisk together yogurt, sour cream, lime juice, lime peel, honey, chile, and garlic in a large bowl. Stir in cilantro. Add cabbage and green onions; toss to incorporate evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill 1 hour.
