Recipe Revision!

August 23, 2011

As summer begins to wind down and the fall harvest is nearly upon us, we felt like making this dish the other night. We first printed this recipe about a year ago, but this time I decided to add an ingredient that for some reason I did not think to add when we created this recipe – cider vinegar. The original recipe was very tasty on its own, but was created with the intent of putting it on a pulled pork sandwich, as a twist on the traditional coleslaw. That pairing didn’t work too well, and I couldn’t figure out why – apples and pork go well together, the seasoning was very good, and the texture was great. But now I know why – the slaw needed vinegar, a nice touch of acidity to balance out the sweetness of the apples and cut through the honey and mayo. Now this dish is perfect, and it does go great with pulled pork or as a side for any BBQ meal. Enjoy!

Zesty Apple Slaw

(serves 4)

2 granny smith apples, peeled and julienned

1-1/2 tbsp. lemon juice

1/3 cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp. cider vinegar

1/3 cup chopped scallions

2 tbsp. honey

1 tsp. mustard

1/2 tsp. allspice

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well mixed.  Taste for seasoning.  Cover and refrigerate up to an hour.  Eat!
