I am loving Fall this year! Well, I love Fall every year. The pretty colors, the crisp mornings, and yes, even the rain. I like it. So sue me.
The other thing I love about Fall is the produce that comes into season. Honeycrisp apples (my favorite of all the apples) and pomegranates! When those ugly red bundles of joy hit the shelves my heart goes pitter pat. Yes, they are a bit of a pain to pick apart. Yes, they stain your fingers. I don’t care, they are wonderful! And they are really good for you! Eat them, eat them now!
I made up this recipe on the fly the other day when I needed a quick side dish. And can I just say, YUM! This is easily one of my favorite cole slaw variations to date.
Apple Pomegranate Slaw
1 cup purple cabbage, shredded or chopped
2-3 cups green cabbage, shredded or chopped
1/2 pomegranate (seeds only)
1 apple (I used Honeycrisp but any kind will work), shredded
2-3 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 tbsp. mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. yellow or dijon mustard
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Salt & pepper
Combine all ingredients. Serve immediately.
