I have no idea why, but I had a big craving for some coleslaw today! It didn't help that I saw great mounds of cabbage at the farmers' market either. I ended up with a, larger than intended, head of green cabbage. Then came the fun part...what to make with it! First things first...gotta get some creamy coleslaw marinating. There are so many different ways to make coleslaw, this version has apple and carrot for sweetness and apple cider vinegar for a tang.
CREAMY COLESLAW with APPLE
2 cups green cabbage, sliced thin
1/2 small sweet apple (gala works well), peeled and minced
2 tbsp minced white onion
1 small carrot, shredded or grated
2 tbsp light mayo or soy-free veganaise
4 tsp apple cider vinegar (to taste)
fresh cracked salt
Combine all prepared ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Season to taste, adding more vinegar, salt or mayo...
Let marinate for at least a half hour before serving.
TIP: To add a nice texture to the coleslaw you can also julienne slice some of the apple.
