This Carrot and Apple Slaw is no exception. Just look at the bright orange from the carrots. When I opened my delivery from Grimmway farms and saw a bag of carrot slaw I knew that I was going to make slaw! It made it so easy! The flavor of this slaw is sweet and a tad sour. I like the rice wine vinegar in the dressing because it adds to the sweetness but if you don’t haven any you could also use an apple cider vinegar. I can’t wait to make this again and again this summer!
1 large sweet red apple
1 large tart green apple
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
10 ounces raw matchstick carrots (about 3 cups)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 3 ounces)
1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries
Core apples and cut into thin slices; cut slices into matchsticks (you should have around 3 1/2 cups julienned apples). Place in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice. Add carrots and stir to combine.
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, honey, rice wine vinegar, and salt and pepper, to taste. Pour over apple/carrot mixture and stir to coat. Mix in crumbled feta cheese and dried cranberries.
Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper, if necessary.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to blend, or longer if you prefer softer carrots and apples. If a bit of liquid accumulates at the bottom of the bowl, serve using a slotted spoon.
