When your dairy free husband eats a massive bowl because it’s “so good and worth how bad I am going to feel” (his words) you know it’s a keeper recipe!

Honestly, I have to agree with him. If I could not eat dairy, I would still eat this because it’s THAT GOOD.

It’s a little more sweet than my oriental coleslaw and a little lighter than my shredded cabbage salad with apples…

….Which basically means that it is PERFECT.

Why you will LOVE This Recipe

In the summertime, EVERYONE loves grilling out (I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t!) and what goes better with grilled goodness than a fresh and flavorful summer salad! I love throwing together a mediterranean cucumber salad or tossing up a shrimp avocado salad with watermelon in the summer because they add so much color and freshness to a dinner plate. Today, let’s all welcome apple cider coleslaw to the blog! It’s sweet, yet tangy, and oh-so-flavorful, not to mention healthy and delicious! You and your crew are going to love the pop of color it brings to your plate and how well it pairs with so many main dishes!

How to make Apple Coleslaw


Turn on the oven and let it preheat. Spread out the almonds on a pan and place it in the oven. Toast the nuts until they are fragrant and lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside. 


Add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine them well. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. 


Cover and chill for at least 2 hours, then serve and enjoy!

Top Tips for making Coleslaw

Use Unsweetened Yogurt: The recipe turns out best if you use a plain, unsweetened greek yogurt!Use Cabbage Mix: If you want to skip chopping up all the ingredients, go ahead and use a store bought cabbage mix to save time!Eat Soon after Making: This coleslaw is best when eaten soon after it is made. Go ahead and chill it for a bit, then devour it!Leave out the Mayo: If you want to make an apple coleslaw no mayo version of this recipe, feel free! Leaving out the mayo is fine, and the recipe will still be delicious.

Can I use a different Dried Fruit?

Absolutely! If you don’t have craisins or prefer something different, feel free to mix things up. Dried blueberries or raisins would be really tasty in this coleslaw recipe.

What to serve with Apple Coleslaw

Now that you have a fresh, chilled, colorful bowl of delicious coleslaw with apples, it’s time to serve it up! I recommend serving it alongside your favorite protein- slow cooker paleo pulled pork would be absolutely delicious with it, as well as some air fryer potato wedges to finish off the meal! If you want to make things a little fancier, consider serving it with a juicy coffee rubbed steak! Enjoy!
