Not just any Slaw, Apple Slaw!

12 Jun

I love a good slaw and this is something I may not have tried it if it wasn’t for my friend and fellow blogger Kimbrough Daniels. This is no ordinary slaw; no mayonnaise and no celery seed but there is apple, red onion, shallots and cilantro. It is light and refreshing with lots great flavor.

My husband loved it and I knew he would, he loves anything with apples. And this is a great salad to take to a picnic because you don’t have to worry about the mayo getting bad!

Dressing:

1/2 cup olive oil

1 Tbs minced shallot

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

1/8 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tsp mustard

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp paprika

Slaw:

1 small head of cabbage, shredded

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

1 or 2 apples, julienned (Honey Crisp or Pink Lady)

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped

In a jar with a lid combine all dressing ingredients. With lid tight, shake well until combined. Place all the slaw ingredients in a large bowl, pour dressing over slaw and toss  until the slaw is well coated. Chill for at least 30 minutes and enjoy!

*My husband suggested using Granny Smith apples to make it more tart…I think I’ll give it a try next time I make it because I will be making it again!
