Easy Apple-Carrot Coleslaw

Rated as 4.15 out of 5 Stars
16

"This delicious, creamy coleslaw is kind to your waistline because the dressing has been lightened a bit. The addition of apples (Granny Smiths and Macintoshes are great!) and carrots sweetens the salad nicely."

  1. Place a large colander into the sink. Place the coleslaw mix and red cabbage into the colander. Sprinkle lightly with salt, toss, and allow to stand 15 minutes.
  2. Pour the vinegar into a large bowl. Grate apples into the bowl and toss with vinegar to keep from turning brown. Stir in the grated carrots, mayonnaise, sour cream, and celery seed until evenly coated. Season with black pepper to taste.
  3. Rinse the coleslaw mix and cabbage with very cold water; drain, pressing out as much water as possible. Taste, and if still too salty, repeat the process. Pat dry with paper towels. Stir coleslaw and cabbage into apple mixture, and toss to coat evenly with dressing. Chill until ready to serve; stir before serving.

Hooray! This recipe is a keeper! I used half a medium cabbage, sliced fine, in place of the coleslaw mix and red cabbage. I kept everything else the same and my 2yr old gobbled up a half cup of...

I LOVED this recipe. I am not afraid of fat, so used full fat mayo and sour cream and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. The nice tang of the apples was a real bonus to plain old sla...

Easy and sweet with no extra honey. Didn't have shredded coleslaw or celery seed and it was still delicious.

The apple is perfect for fall. I have been making it quite often so that by Thanksgiving I will have it tweeked to make all happy!

the only think I left out was the celery seed but this was AMAZING!!! :-)

Too easy to be so tasty & health-conscious! I made a couple substitutions due to necessity/curiosity. I only had about 1/4 cup mayo, so I added a 1/4 c thousand island dressing. It seemed a litt...

Love this slaw. Especially using the fat free ingredients. It is delicious and easy.
