Crunchy Apple Slaw


I hate mayonnaise and salad dressing. I'm out of luck at picnics where the side dishes are potato salad and coleslaw and macaroni salad. Yuck! Unless of course they are made with a nice tangy vinaigrette rather than mayo.

The apples add a refreshing twist to this sweet and tangy slaw recipe. Add a grilled chicken breast and you have a wonderful salad for a lunch!

Crunchy Apple Slaw

Put the following ingredients in a medium sized jar and shake until mixed:

1/4 cup rice vinegar
juice of one orange
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons canola oil
freshly ground pepper

In a bowl mix together:

4 cups sliced cabbage mix (from a bag)
1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
2 gala apples, cut in matchstick pieces
1/3 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped (I usually just snip it with a scissors.)

Toss with the dressing about a half hour before serving.
