In this Apple Cabbage Slaw with Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing fresh cabbage, carrots and apples work well together in this super delicious side dish.
Apple. Cabbage. Slaw. With a yummy poppy seed dressing that is totally to die for! It’s creamy, crunchy and healthy! Well maybe except for the cup of mayo, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s a dang good slaw and you will love how the apple adds a delicious sweet twist to it! My oldest and I showed no shame as we helped ourselves to seconds… and thirds and I’m sure you will too!
To Make This Apple Cabbage Slaw You Will Need:
FOR THE SLAW:
- green cabbage
- Fuji or honeycrisp apples
- green onions, trimmed and sliced thin
- chopped fresh parsley
- juice of half a lemon
POPPY SEED DRESSING:
- apple cider vinegar
- kosher salt
- ground black pepper
To Make This Poppyseed Dressing:
In a small bowl add 1 cup mayo.
Then pour in 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar.
And 1/4 cup honey.
Season with kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper. For me it was 1-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper.
Lastly add in 3 tablespoons poppy seeds.
Give it a whisk until all the ingredients are incorporated. Make sure to scrape the bottom for any honey that could be stuck to the bottom. Cover with some plastic wrap and set in the fridge to chill.
Remove any tough outer leaves on your small head of green cabbage.
Slice in half and remove the core.
Quarter the halves and then slice very thinly. Or, you could quarter, remove the core then slice thin… what-evs!
Toss the shredded cabbage into the largest bowl you have.
Now you can move on to the apples.
Next, quarter 2 apples, remove the core and discard.
Then slice thin.
And then slice into thin strips to julienne the apple.
Next, squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. This will keep the apples from turning brown.
Then peel and slice 3 medium carrots.
Then cut the carrots into matchsticks also. I obviously need to take my time because these aren’t so perfect.
Then wash and trim 5 or so green onions.
Have you ever dipped the trimmed end into some kosher salt and ate them? So so SO good!
Next, slice those babies thin.
Then Roughly chop some parsley, about 2 tablespoons or so.
Next, toss them on top of the cabbage.
Next, pour the poppyseed dressing over the top. There is something about a good poppy seed dressing!
Tempting, I know.
Next, give it a toss.
Lastly, chill until ready to serve. This slaw totally rocks. Crisp, sweet and refreshing! Apples add a delicious twist to this coleslaw… I promise you’ll love it!
