Sweet Apple Coleslaw

Sweet Apple Coleslaw

Coleslaw is wonderful because it is crunchy, sweet, and seems to taste better the next day! This recipe has apples which lend an extra crunch to the mix. Cabbage is one of my favorite salad veggies and I like to put it into any green salad I may be making just to add that extra crunch and texture.


  • Very finely sliced white cabbage, about 2 cups 
  • 2 medium sized carrots, shredded 
  • 1 apple, chopped 
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped 
  • 1 green onion, sliced thinly, discard the dark green part 
  • 1 handful toasted sunflower seeds 
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons organic honey 
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 


  1. In a jar shake together the liquid ingredients and the salt and pepper to blend. 
  2. Let it sit while you prepare the coleslaw so the salt dissolves. Taste it to see if it needs a little more of anything. 
  3. In a large bowl mix together the veggies. 
  4. Shake the dressing ingredients one last time and pour over the coleslaw and toss well. 
  5. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds over the top and toss again. 
  6. Let sit for about 15 minutes and serve.
