Autumn Apple Coleslaw

We almost decided to call this recipe “The Best Ever Coleslaw” since it’s a much healthier version of the traditional coleslaw and so darn fresh and delicious. Nutritious ingredients like olive oil and tahini take the place of mayonnaise in this recipe. The purple cabbage is served raw, which preserves the health promoting nutrients and enzymes. The apple cider vinegar supports healthy digestion and helps to prevent acid reflux.

Our Apple Coleslaw can be served as a wonderful light lunch, or as a side dish to any meal - and beautifully combines the flavors of autumn and winter.

We love using locally grown ingredients whenever possible for the best flavors and nutritional value. Fresh, crunchy, and satisfying - we hope you’ll find yourself making this dish every fall!
