It’s that time guys. It’s time for the beach. It’s time for going out on my SUP. What I really mean is it’s time for the heat. It’s time to sweat.
The soup, stews, and roasting will have to be put on hold until fall. Not the soups, my wife will cook a soup even when it’s 150° outside. But we really just try not to heat up the kitchen. We move to lighter food so it doesn’t beat us down in the heat. You all know what I’m saying.
Anyway, this is perfect for those nights in the summer heat or to bring to a BBQ. It’s refreshing and it’s not heavy and creamy. It’s a snap to put together. It’s chock full of cancer fighting veggies and it goes great with crispy skin salmon or leftover chicken. If you’re not a meat eater, throw some rinsed, drained white beans in there and you have all you need.
VEG & APPLE SLAW
2 cups shredded green cabbage
2 cups shredded red cabbage
*or 4 cups prepared slaw mix*
1/4 cup white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar, or tarragon vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
pinch of cayenne, optional
2 medium apples, Honeycrisp or Granny Smith
2-3 medium carrots
Place your shredded cabbages in a large bowl.
Combine the vinegar, syrup or honey, Dijon mustard, salt, and pinch of cayenne (if using), in a bowl and set aside.
Use the course blade of a spiralizer, the one that looks like thick noodles, spiralize your apples. If your carrots are big enough, spiralize them. If you can’t spiralize your carrots, or you just don’t have a spiralizer, you can use the course side of a box grater to grate both the carrots and the apples. Add the apples and carrots to your big bowl of cabbage.
Give your dressing a stir and pour it over the veg. Toss to coat. Eat.

Has anyone actually made this recipes, I know it looks good, but how does it taste.
I like it. I may be biased, but honestly, I don’t post recipes that I don’t eat. If you want a mayo free slaw, this is delicious. It’s fresh and crisp and goes great with a pulled pork sandwich!

I’ve never thought of adding apples to the cabbage but with the honey mixed it it must be heavenly!
This looks really lovely! I really hate mayo but the crunchy freshness of these veggies looks divine.
This will be the perfect addition to our salad repetoire. With the sweetness of apples, and the it’s too hot to cook weather, consider the recipe pinned! BB2U&

Hope you enjoy Myriah! Thanks for taking a look!
It sounds wonderful, and the apple is a nice twist. I’m not a huge fan of mayonnaise, so this is perfect for me. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.
Not only does this look delicious, but I love the inclusion of apple in the recipe.
Hello from the Hearth & Soul link party!
It is summer where I live and I live on salads most of the time (diabetic). This one looks delectable and so refreshing!

It looks so crisp and fresh. Yum.
Love this recipe- I like bringing salads without mayo so they can sit out a bit without spoiling- this works! Plus, I love apples in here- so good!

Looks like a delicious side dish! I don’t like to heat the kitchen up either when it starts to get warmer! Thanks for sharing at The Blogger’s Pit Stop! Roseann from This Autoimmune Life
Yes, Jaxx! Bring on the sun and the BBQ’s!! I am so ready and will be preparing some of your delicious cole slaw for the first grilling session of the season…. now somebody just has to stop the rain from falling in my neck of the woods!
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Fiesta Friday. I know that there are many of us who are chomping at the bit for some sun and warm weather meals.
I love this mayo-less idea! I bet it would taste great with nuts too. Another reason to get myself a spiralizer!
Will be tweeting and pinning this. Greetings from the Blogger’s Pit Stop!
Pistachios! Yes! Thanks for checking it out Fabiola!
