Apple Cabbage Coleslaw With Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Apple Cabbage Coleslaw With Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Makes six servings

Apples and braised cabbage is the classic flavor pairing that inspired this salad. Traditional mayonnaise is replaced with poppy seed vinaigrette, which adds a great contrast of color and flavor. Full-fat yogurt is also a great substitute for mayo-based coleslaws.

1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
1 tbs. honey
2 tsp. Dijon-style mustard
3/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs. poppy seeds


3 cups shredded savoy cabbage
1 cup julienned carrots
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 thinly sliced gala apples

For the vinaigrette: Combine the garlic, vinegar, honey and mustard in a blender. While the blender is running, slowly drizzle in the oil to create a creamy vinaigrette. Stir in poppy seeds by hand.

For the salad: In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, onion and apples. Pour dressing over and mix well.

This recipe sounds amazing! Quite different from other poppy seed dressing recipes that I see. I am going to try this out on my family tonight. Thanks for sharing!
