Green Apple Coleslaw

You know when you have a dish that you make all the time but never take the time to measure it correctly? And then people keep asking you for that recipe but you can basically just give them a list of ingredients and send them on their way? Well I finally decided to perfect my favorite coleslaw and instead of just sharing it with my friends, I’m sharing it with everyone! This coleslaw is easy to prepare but packs tons of flavor. It combines shredded purple cabbage (my favorite), green cabbage, carrots, raisins and green apples so it’s crunchy, chewy, sweet and tart all at the same time. Every time I mention green apples, my mouth starts watering. Does that happen to you?

Green Apple Coleslaw


1 cup grated carrots

1 cup shredded purple cabbage

1 cup shredded green cabbage

1 cup thinly sliced green apple

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp honey

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Combine the carrots, purple cabbage, green cabbage, green apple and raisins in a mixing bowl.

Separately, whisk together the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, honey and garlic powder. Pour the dressing over the vegetable mixture and stir to combine.

Green apple coleslaw can be made 1 day in advance and refrigerated until ready to serve. The longer the cabbage sits in the coleslaw dressing, the softer and less crunchy it will become.
