This Apple slaw with Crunchy apples, Cabbage, carrot, Tart Cranberries in a creamy yoghurt dressing, is healthy and easy to make. Apple Slaw is a perfect side dish to serve and can be made in just 10 minutes.
Perfectly creamy and light, this Apple slaw is an amazing side dish for this holiday season. A great way to put the seasonal apples into use. The dressing is healthy, light yet creamy. Unlike regular coleslaws, the dressing is not loaded with mayo. But worry not, you are not going to miss the creaminess of the mayo.
If you are planning a Thanksgiving Party this time, this creamy slaw would pair so well with the roast or any other meaty main dish.
I prefer to serve something light and refreshing along with grilled chicken or meat. While the chicken is in the oven, I mostly ended up making a light salad to serve with it. This Cranberry Apple Slaw is one of our favourites. It is sweet, creamy with a little bit of tang in every bite.
INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING APPLE SLAW
All you need is fresh and crunchy veggies and apples to make the best ever Apple Slaw. I love how colourful this salad looks. Cabbage, carrots, apples need to be fresh and should have the crunch. Use a shredder or food processor attachment to shred the veggies. You can also buy readymade Coleslaw mix from the stores. Make sure the apples are firm.
You can also add red bell peppers, green apples to it. I have used a mix of white and purple cabbage, shredded carrots and of course apples. Almond ads crunch to the salad, but you can add walnut, pistachios or even pecans to it.
TO MAKE HEALTHY DRESSING WITH YOGHURT
The best thing about this Cranberry Apple Slaw is the super creamy dressing. I always try to make the salad dressing healthy and light. A Mayo based dressing is definitely creamy and richer, but the calorie count also rises. This salad dressing is a mix of greek yoghurt and Mayo. Perfectly creamy with a hint of sweetness. Apple cider vinegar gives a fruity punch to it.
The salad dressing is really yum and creamy. And works like charm to bring the salad together. If you prefer, you can completely avoid the mayo in this dressing.
Serve this creamy apple Coleslaw with Grilled Chicken for a quick dinner.
