The other day I was craving some kind of crunchy slaw-like salad. My fridge was half-empty (or half full?) so I made a mess of what was left, tossed it all around in a tupperware, and somehow it worked. Exceptionally well. As in, I'll be making this for lunch every day for the indefinite future.
Full disclosure: I'm not a mayonnaise fan, so feel free to amp up the creaminess if that's your thing.
WHAT YOU NEED*:
1 heaping cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 small crisp apple, chopped finely (Fuji, Honeycrisp, etc.)
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons raisins (golden preferably)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon hot honey*
Pinch of salt & pepper, to taste
*Other addition add-in ideas: red onion, purple cabbage, jicama, fennel seeds, celery
**I used Mike's Hot Honey (which is awesome!). Feel free to sub in a combination of honey/agave and cayenne pepper/hot sauce.
- In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, apple, walnuts and raisins.
- In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients to form dressing, tinkering with the ratios to desired thickness and taste.
- Pour dressing over salad and toss thoroughly.
