Honey Apple Slaw – IC Friendly Salad

September 18, 2012

This sweet dish gives a good mix of fruit, veggies and protein (greek yogurt), and serves as a nice salad to make ahead and bring in your lunch to school or work, or to bring as a dish to pass at a gathering.

Makes six one-cup servings.

 Ingredients:

  • 5 cups thinly sliced cabbage (Packaged angel hair cabbage works well).
  • 2 cups chopped Fuji apples
  • 1/2 cup pure plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or more to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Combine cabbage and apples in large bowl. 
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in small bowl; stir or whisk well. 
  3. Add small bowel mixture to cabbage mixture, tossing to coat. 
  4. Cover & chill. 

Variations:

  • To add a little crunch, you can add a nut of your choice — almonds or walnuts work well and are IC friendly.
  • Sliced or shredded radish and/or carrots may add some color as well.
  • Raisins can add some sweetness.
  • Try adding shredded or chopped fresh fennel; or replacing cabbage all together with fennel.
