Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Toss cabbage, apple, and onions together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk vinegar, sugar, olive oil, vegetable oil, Dijon mustard, and red pepper flakes together in a saucepan over medium heat; bring dressing to a simmer. Pour hot dressing over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors blend and slaw is cold, at least 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

If you are making this to last more than a day it is best to salt the cabbage, let it wilt for an hour, then rinse and dry chopped cabbage before the slaw. This removes water from the cabbage, helping it to stay crisp longer.

Added a little more hot pepper flakes to suit our taste but we enjoyed this side dish. Took the picture and then realized I'd forgotten to add the green onions...added them post-photo and they were a good addition! Read More

Yey!!! Been feasting on this ALL weekend. A few changes: add celery for extra crunch and cilantro. Served with a dab of crema once and with a dab of greek yogurth another time. BOTH work perfectly because They tame the acidity of the vinager. Thanks a millón!!!! Read More

Definitely make again. I added some roasted pecan pieces and celery seed along with mustard seed. About a 1/4 teaspoon of the two spices. I cut back on the sugar less than a 1/4 cup. I taste it as I go. The apples definitely give it some sour goodness. Some pear might be good as well. It definitely will be better the next day as the vinegar breaks it down. Serving this with some chicken on the grille. I am trying to eat healthier as I age. So this has some great good health sense to it. Enjoy! Read More

This has become my favorite salad; always a crowd-pleaser at pot-lucks and such. I never happen to have green onions on hand when I make it; I've used regular onions or skipped them altogether. Someday I will try it with green onions. I also usually use less sugar than called for for personal taste reasons also use less hot pepper flakes. Read More

I like this a lot but I believe next time I will do as other reviewers suggested and decrease the sugar and oils. Read More

i'm not a sweet salad dressing fan but i chose this recipe bc i wanted to use up two small granny smiths that were on their way out.. i cut the recipe in half.. used both apples which i shredded.. also added a shredded carrot.. subbed one packet of splenda for the sugar.. left out the veg oil.. doubled the mustard (spicy brown).. threw in a tbsp of nonfat plain yogurt some sea salt and celery seed a clove of garlic and a little more red pepper flakes.. i didn't cook this on the stove top.. just threw it into my ninja to blend.. this is exactly what i had in mind.. ty for the recipe/inspiration Read More

we enjoyed this fresh tasting accompaniment to roast chicken. I skipped the vegetable oil and just used the olive oil and so everything was lightly coated with the dressing but not soggy or overdressed. I used honey as the sweetener. I will definitely make over and over. Read More
