It's a slaw with the brightness of tart apples and vinegar, and without the weight of mayo. Infinitely edible! —Laura Minkler

  • Serves 3-4
Ingredients
  • For the slaw
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1.5 cups red cabbage
  • 1.25 cups green cabbage

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Core and thinly slice the apple, unpeeled. Toss with lemon juice in a large bowl.
  2. Remove outer layers of cabbages and use a large knife to thinly slice into ribbons. Add to apples.
  3. Wash and grate (with the large holes) the raw beet. Add to apples and cabbage.
  4. Whisk together the vinegars, mustard, and olive oil. Pour over the slaw and toss well. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper if needed. The flavors age nicely if you have the time to let this sit for an hour or two-- or more.
