Apple-Cabbage Slaw

Apple-Cabbage Slaw

Can you believe that our favorite Mexican restaurant is where I learned to love coleslaw?!? I know, it isn’t where I expected to develop this crazy affair either, but our favorite Mexican restaurant serves salsa and coleslaw with their fresh tortilla chips. It may sound kind of strange, but it is so good. If it hadn’t have been for their slaw I may never have found out that I developed a taste for raw cabbage, nor would I have ever thought about making this Apple-Cabbage Slaw.

Now I can enjoy slaw with fried fish, BBQ sandwiches and fish tacos just like anybody else. I’ve been trying new types of coleslaw ever since. I’ve really been missing out! The crazy thing is about this recipe is that I almost didn’t get to try it. I just so happened to look on the back side of the torn out magazine page for the recipe page for the French Dip Sandwiches the apples practically sang to me. I’m so glad I didn’t miss out on this recipe!

Crunchy cabbage, crisp apples, and green onions tossed with a zesty mustard dressing, this colorful Apple-Cabbage Slaw makes a great side dish for any summer BBQ.

Here’s how I made it:

In an extra-large bowl, combine the apple, coleslaw, and green onion.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together mustard, oil, vinegar, and honey. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour the mustard mixture over the cabbage mixture; toss with tongs to combine.
