Apple Coleslaw

29 Jul

Hooray for my first post! Now you might think why on earth I chose this recipe as my first post, and let me tell you right now; simply because I had some apples and cabbage at home and wanted to make myself a salad. Yes, there are times I go grocery shopping for a specific recipe but more often I come up with something based on the food I already have at home. Hope you enjoy it!

This salad reminds me of coleslaw but without the excessive mayonnaise soup it usually swims in. I sometimes omit the onion when I don’t want it to overpower the cabbage. You are free to do so as well, and you can definitely add some shredded carrots to it as well, to make it taste more like the classic coleslaw we know.

Ingredients

1 cup thinly sliced strips of red apple

1 cup thinly sliced strips of green apple

 2 cups shredded green cabbage

                                              ½ cup thinly sliced sweet onion

                                              2 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise

                                              ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard

                                              1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

                                             ½ tablespoon olive oil

                                            ½ tablespoon honey

                                            Salt and pepper to taste


Combine the apples, cabbage, and onion in a large bowl.

In a separate small bowl whisk together the reduced fat mayo, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and honey.

Pour the dressing over the mixture in the big bowl. Add salt and pepper according to your taste. Enjoy!
