Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, giving you a new kind of coleslaw recipe, Apple Walnut Coleslaw. Coleslaw with apples and walnuts added is a little sweet and a lot crunchy. The crunchiness is one of the things I love about coleslaw, don’t you?
We had this Apple Walnut Coleslaw last night for supper while we were watching the Packers beat the Cowboys. The final few minutes of the football game were pretty exciting. When football’s on TV, Don likes to have “football food” and a beer. Unfortunately, we were all out of beer, so he stuck with water. We paired the Apple Walnut Coleslaw with a hamburger, some Fritos chips, olives and pickles. What’s a hamburger without dill pickles? (Not as good, for sure!)
This recipe is very easy, especially if you have a food processor. I used our food processor to grate the onions, cabbage and carrots. I cut up the apples and walnuts by hand, and whisked the dressing quickly. It took me about 15 minutes to make this recipe, start to finish, and then I refrigerated it for a few hours before serving.
