Savor the Season: Cabbage and Apple

Who doesn’t love a good slaw?

Beautiful purple cabbages and red apples combine to make a bright dish during dreary winter days.

I combined 1/2 a head of cabbage, sliced and diced with an apple chopped bite size. No tried and true recipe here, but into the mix went a bit of champagne vinegar, a bit of plain yogurt, and some chopped pecans.

I added some sesame seeds that were lurking in my cabinet, along with a little salt and just a pinch of sugar. Then I covered my bowl of cabbage-y, apple-y deliciousness and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

The purple color of the cabbage infused the whole dish, turning the thin yogurt sauce a beautiful shade, and slightly coloring the apples. The vinegar in the dish kept the yellow flesh of the apples from browning, and their red peels provide a nice contrast to the purple cabbage.

Crunchy, colorful, sweet and sour. Slightly creamy, but mostly tangy. Delightful as a side dish, or tasty as a sandwich topper.

You can’t go wrong with a good coleslaw.


Cheers from Seattle,
