apple-cabbage slaw

21 Feb

This salad is great on its own, or it makes a great base for add-ins.  Try cubed chicken or turkey, dried cranberries and/or slivered almonds (add-in’s will increase point value for the salad).  I ate it for lunch three days in a row and it was fantastic.

Apple-Cabbage Slaw

  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 head Napa cabbage, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 3/4 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • freshly ground pepper

In a serving bowl, toss apple slices with lemon juice.  Add cabbage, carrots, and green onions.

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oils, ginger, honey, mustard, salt and pepper.  Pour dressing over slaw.  Toss and serve, or chill for up to an hour.
