Tasty Tuesday – Tangy Apple Slaw

Tasty Tuesday – Tangy Apple Slaw

Here is the amazing Coleslaw recipe I modified for the Food Lion Cook off at the end of August. We didn’t have access to all the ingredients so we had to improvise… using cucumbers in the absence of cabbage and red wine vinegar in place of the apple cider vinegar.

It still turned out great.  Wasn’t as colorful as the original recipe, but just as tasty.

It 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 my 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!

Tangy Apple Slaw

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