DYAN DAMRON / COACH D CONSULTING
1 large head (or 2 small heads) red cabbage
1 large head (or 2 small heads) green cabbage, any variety
2 large (or 3 small) granny smith apples
2 c dried cranberries
1-1/2 c sliced almonds
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1 T spicy brown mustard
1/2 t salt
Slice the cabbage into thin strips or small dices. Slice the apple, leaving peel on, into similar size pieces. Add cabbage and apple to a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together (or shake in a jar) EVOO, vinegar, mustard, and salt. Pour dressing over cabbage and apple and mix to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours or up to overnight. When ready to serve, add cranberries and almonds and stir to combine all ingredients. If slaw appears too dry, you may wish to add a little more dressing. This recipe makes approximately 16-20 servings. The flavors in this salad only get better after melding for a few hours. Plus, it can safely sit at room temp for several hours - perfect for parties and tailgates! It will keep in the refrigerator for several days.
