Apple Coleslaw

There was an apple fest at our grocery store today and this was one of the samples.

12 oz. cole slaw mix
2 tart apples, cored and finely sliced
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
1/3 cup sunflower or vegetable oil
3 T lemon juice
3 T honey
1 1/2 tsp celery seeds
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, honey and celery seed.

Add the cole slaw mix, apple, celery and green pepper; toss to coat.

Season with salt and pepper

Chill until serving.

We had this as a side with salmon and a baguette.

Did I change anything? I used broccoli slaw instead of traditional cole slaw mix and I didn’t add the celery seeds because I didn’t have any.

What did the family think? Hubby and I liked it. The kids picked out the apples and the carrots. I ended up breaking up my salmon and mixing it in with the apple slaw. It was really good like that. The salmon goes really well with the sweetness/tartness of the apples. It would make a really good summer salad with salmon like we did or maybe with chicken.
