Fast & Healthy No-Mayo Coleslaw

Tested by Cairo Cooking
This salad was tested in the CairoCooking test kitchen and the result: Yummy! It's sweet, crunchy yet light! While the almonds add some nuttiness, the raisins bring a sweet dimension to this all time classic. If you try this no-mayo dressing, you might never want to eat the mayo coleslaw again. We added 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard instead of the recommended 2 tablespoons since we felt it might be too strong - it worked for us. Therefore we advise to add the Dijon gradually and taste as you go!
This is a healthier version of the creamy, crunchy classic version. Just throw one pack of coleslaw mix (you can find it at larger supermarkets) or shred a bunch of carrots, red and white cabbage. Add some almonds and raisins and this healthy dressing below.
