Tips on making coleslaw
Horseradish. I used 2 teaspoons of horseradish in this Brussels sprouts coleslaw because that adds just the right amount of zest for my taste. Your taste maybe quite different from mine. Try the dressing first and see if you decide that you need another teaspoon (or two) of zest. I don’t think you can go wrong with some extra horseradish here. Or, you might decide that 1 teaspoon is all you need.
Sugar. I used 2 tablespoons of sugar for Brussels sprouts Cole slaw for 1 pound of sprouts. Using 1 tablespoon will still retain some sweetness in the dressing – so keep this in mind if 2 tablespoons is too excessive for your taste.
The dressing here is a combination of mayo and plain yogurt to lighten things up a bit.
