A sweet and tart apple and cabbage slaw in a creamy maple Dijon dressing. 


For the slaw

  • 2 apples, julienned*
  • 1 cup green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1/2 red pepper, julienned
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly (optional, I didn't use)

For the Creamy Maple Dijon Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix the yogurt, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt and pepper until well blended.
  2. Place dressing in the refrigerator while prepping the other ingredients.
  3. Julienne the apples, carrot and red pepper.
  4. Shred the cabbage.
  5. Mix everything together in a large bowl and toss in the dressing.
  6. You can serve right away or make ahead and refrigerate until ready to use (it tastes even better the next day).


Recipe Notes

*I used a gala apple and a Granny Smith apple, but any sweet and tart apple would work.

Tip: Use a mandolin to quickly prep the ingredients. I didn't actually measure the cabbage, I just eyeballed it.
