Tasty Tuesday – Tangy Apple Slaw

Tangy Apple Slaw

Two years ago I was fortunate enough to be a participant in the Food Lion Cook Off. The cook-off was like Master Chef, blogger edition. There were two teams of three bloggers who battled it out for the best plate of food. We had no idea what ingredients we would have to work with until we got onto the stage! It was nerve-wracking, but so much fun! We ended up choosing pork chops, which was awesome because I was able to make my Iowa Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches, and for sides we made my Tangy Apple Slaw, and Spicy Mexican Corn.

While everything we made was delicious, we ended up losing by 1 point to the other team of bloggers. I blame the monotone color of our plate (see photo below).

We didn’t have access to all the ingredients I normally use to make my slaw, so we had to improvise… using cucumbers in the absence of the cabbage and red pepper, and instead of apple cider vinegar and maple syrup we had to use red wine vinegar and table sugar. While it still tasted good, without the color of the cabbage and red pepper our plate wasn’t as vibrant as the other teams.

This slaw is so yummy and easy to make (feel free to use pre-shredded cabbage for even speedier prep). I made a HUGE bowl of slaw and the girls couldn’t stop eating it. I kept smacking their hands away until I could snap some photos.

Whatever was left, I put in the fridge thinking I would have it for lunch tomorrow. My kids said it tasted even better the next day. Although I didn’t get to sample it before they devoured every last bite!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
