Apple & Carrot Slaw

Two words. Gorgeous. Tasty.

Try it soon. It's so worth it.

Apple & Carrot Slaw
Serves 6
Points 2

2 medium apples, sliced into matchsticks
2 cups carrots, shredded
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup raisins
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
a super-tiny pinch of salt

In a medium bowl combine apples, carrots, craisins and raisins. I used one Gala Apple and one Golden Delicious Apple, but feel free to use whatever combination of apples strikes your fancy.

In a separate bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil and honey. Pour over apple mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a tiny, tiny bit of salt. Toss to coat.

You can eat this slaw right out of the bowl after you're done mixing it, but I would recommend chilling it for at least 30 minutes. Not only does it cool the slaw (which is my favorite way to eat slaw), but it also gives the dried fruit a bit of time to plump in the dressing mixture.

Go make this now, please. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

  1. That looks positively addictive!

    It's hard to stop yourself when you make something so good, but need to wait for it to get even better. The childish impatience definitely comes out of me in those situations.
