"This is a salad you can keep in your refrigerator until you're ready to serve; just like your summer slaw, but for winter," says Jenn Louis. The crisp vegetables mixed with the creamy yogurt dressing would also be excellent as a filling in tacos.

  1. 3 cups fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  2. 1/2 cup skim milk
  3. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  4. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  5. 1/2 cup thinly sliced chives
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  7. 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  8. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 1 Hass avocado, thinly sliced
  11. 8 cups finely shredded green cabbage (from a 2-pound head)
  12. 8 radishes, halved and thinly sliced
  13. 2 cups finely julienned peeled jicama (8 ounces)
  14. 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  15. 1 cup thinly sliced celery (3 ribs)
  16. 4 ounces crumbled Cotija cheese
  17. 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the yogurt, milk, garlic, cayenne, chives, cilantro, mint and 3 tablespoons of the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, toss the avocado and remaining 1 tablespoon of lime juice.
  2. n a large baking dish or shallow casserole, spread the cabbage in a thin layer. Top with the radishes, jicama, scallions, celery and avocado.
