Summer Slaw

I'm always on the lookout for new slaw recipes. I found this one on, originally from Good Housekeeping. It's very easy to make, and has the classic bright, fresh flavor of a traditional vinegar based slaw. Rather than shred my carrots by hand and finely slice the cabbage, I used the shredding blade and flat slicing blade in the food processor, and it made making this slaw even easier! I meant to shred the apple, but left the slicing disk on. Next time, for uniformity sake, I would shred the apples instead. 

Summer Slaw
adapted from Good Housekeeping via

1/3 c. cider vinegar
3 tbsp. Canola oil
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. sugar in the raw
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
1/2 head of green cabbage, shredded (about 1/2 lb.)
1/2 head of red cabbage, shredded (about 1/2 lb.)
4 medium carrots, peeled and shredded
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 granny smith apple, cored and shredded

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar, canola coil, mustard, sugar, salt, pepper and shallots.
Add cabbages, carrots and apple, toss to combine. 
Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving, toss well, taste and season before serving.

Sounds fantastic. I cannot for the life of me figure out where 1/2 of my shredding attachment went (the plastic piece that holds the blade on) so I've been doing things by hand. I forgot how much time it saved and now I need to find it again!

Ok so I'm not a big slaw person but this looks amazing. I've got a pot luck at work I'm going to do a sweet potato pie for and maybe I'll try this as well.

....because the dijon and apple sounds like it's right up my alley.

I love the apples as an added flavor to the slaw! They definitely give this some pizazz.

Oh, this sounds tasty. I'm wondering if maybe a little cumin would work in this to ad an earthy/smokey flavor.

this sounds great--love non-mayo based slaws! I'm a big fan of using my food processor to chop too :)
