Apple Coleslaw

Summer is here!  Let’s celebrate by making a batch of crisp, crunchy,wonderfully nourishing coleslaw! The apples add a hit of summery freshness, and this dish can serve many purposes.   It makes a great side for ultimate burgers at a BBQ, as a topper for pulled pork tacos, or on its own as a healthy lunch (with a bit of leftover pulled pork, ideally).  It will stay fresh and crispy for days, and it’s chock full of good stuff, so you really can’t lose with this refreshing summer salad!

Coleslaw Ingredients

Dice/chop/slice the veggies so they are bite sized.  I used a mandolin this time (love that thing), but a food processor or good, sharp knife would also work just fine.
