Red Cabbage Slaw

So I never thought I would live to see the day when my daughter Libby would actually ask me to make a dish that contains cabbage, but that day has come and I have this recipe to thank for it. It is such a simple coleslaw recipe, but it's different enough from your regular deli slaw that it's special.

And the fact it's purple doesn't hurt, either!

Red Cabbage Slaw
Source: Everyday Food

1/2 cup MSPI-friendly mayonnaise
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 small red cabbage, cored, quartered, and finely shredded
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and grated
Coarse salt and ground pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, mix together mayonnaise and vinegar. Add cabbage and apples; season with coarse salt and ground pepper, and toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.

Tip: Depending on how sweet the apples are, you may want to add a pinch or two of sugar, if the slaw is too tart.
