  1. Toss cabbage, apple, and onions together in a large bowl.
  2. 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.

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....

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

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...

It works! i used red onion but it went so well with the apple. Def used very little sugar and more chilli flakes. it makes me want to eat cabbage more often!

So good. I like mine as a side with Buffalo chicken!!! Makes a great balance

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 ove...
