Bring fruit to the table as a surprise ingredient in this colorful cole slaw recipe. The crunch of the ripe apple perfectly complements the bite of the crisp cabbage. Chill before serving to let the flavors blend.
2 cups shredded green cabbage
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 large unpeeled Fuji applecored, quartered, and thinly sliced
In a large bowl, combine the green and red cabbages; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, celery seed, salt, and pepper. Add the apple slices. Pour over the cabbage and toss gently until coated. Cover and chill 1 hour or longer. To serve, spoon into salad bowls and sprinkle with the parsley (if desired).
Like others, I used 1/4 cup light mayo & 1/4 cupFat free Greek yogurt, a bit little less vinegar & I thinned it with a couple of tbsp of 1% milk...if too tart add a teas of sugar. It's very similar to a regular deli slaw and the apple (cut like match sticks) sweetens it up, currants or raisins would be a nice addition too.
This is a quick cole slaw recipe with great flavor. I made it with only green cabbage, and had to replace the celery seeds with celery salt, but the celery salt seemed to help cut the strong flavor of the apple cider vinegar. Also added shredded radishes for an extra bit of peppery flavor - delicious!
My husband made this while I was recovering from a broken clavicle and he does not cook so it had to be easy. We bought shredded cabbage with carrots, used light mayo and plain greek yogurt (lactose intollerance). It was really good.
I use Light Miracle Whip and a non-fat plain yogurt as a substitute for the mayonnaise and sour cream. It's lighter and any spices used reveal their flavor more boldly. Sometimes I cut back on the vinegar a bit.
Very nice alternative to regular salad with lunch. The dressing is light and tart, which is how I like my slaw to be. Definitely will make again, but sparingly due to calories compared to regular salads.
