Simply Healthy Family: Apple Slaw


Apple Slaw

Simple, old fashion recipes. These are my favorite. My kids too! This is the best blend of flavors, tangy, sweet and wonderful. This reminds of a leisurely day outdoors. If the weather isn't always as sunny as it is here in Phoenix, you could always make this simple apple slaw alongside these home made cornmeal fish sticks and have an indoor picnic! Yay!

Celery seed, if you've never tried it is really good and gives even more flavor to this dish.
I use plain, fat free yogurt as a base instead of mayo so it's much healthier for you. Yogurt's smooth, creamy texture and tanginess (is that a word?) is perfect in coleslaw... I mean appleslaw.
The cider vinegar gives it the classic tartness of coleslaw.
The apples give it some sweet crunch.
Sweet golden raisins make this a sweet treat.
Agave nectar is a perfect compliment to the tartness.

Sweet and tangy! Yum!

Serve it with homemade baked garlic fries and cornmeal crusted fish sticks.

recipe:SERVES 6 TIME 10 min
5 cups cabbage mix (green cabbage and shred carrots)
3 cups pre shredded purple cabbage
2 cups plain, fat free yogurt
1 tablespoon unfiltered apple cider vinegar (filtered/refined foods are over processed and have less nutrients in them.)

2 tablespoons celery seed
2 tablespoons mayo (did you see it hiding in shame in my photo? ;-)
2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
2 green apples, sliced thinly ( I used my KitchenAid thin slicer attachment)
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 tsp ground black pepper

Mix it all together, chill for an hour before serving.
Impress your family and friends by serving this at your next BBQ!
