Apple Slaw

One of the downsides of picking fresh apples is that you always over pick.  You can't help it.  Once you start a bag you want to stuff it.  So even after making 8 Qts of apple pie filling, 8 Qts. of apple sauce, 9 Qts of apple butter, we still had apples left.  What to do?

Luckily a neighbor of mine backs great BBQ pork and invited us to dinner.  So we decided to whip up some cole slaw, but with a twist.  This recipe was SUPER easy and very tasty.  I may not make regular cole slaw again.

Apple Slaw
  • 1 bag of shredded cabbage
  • 1 tart apple (Jonagold, Granny Smith, etc)
  • 1 sweet apple (Gala, Red delicious, etc)
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/3 Cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 Cup greek yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar (loose pack)
  • 3 Tbsp cider vinegar
Using your grater, shred the apples and carrots.  Dice up the bell pepper.  Combine all cabbage, apples, carrot, and bell pepper ina  large bowl and toss together. In a seperate bowl mix all of the wet ingrediants to make the dressing.  Pour dressing over dry slaw, and mix well.

Best if you let sit in the fridge for a few hours.

The Results
I thought this was way better than regular cole slaw.  And it complimented the dry rub pulled pork very well.
