Cabbage and apple slaw

everyone loves.

 

It’s kind of a big thing around here when the salad tends to disappear in minutes.

 

And as you can see below, all it takes is a few fruits and two types of cabbages to make this crunchy, healthy raw apple and cabbage coleslaw.

 

For me, the star of this cabbage and apple slaw salad are the oranges, they give a burst of sweet citrus flavor as you munch on the salad.

 

Crunchy red and regular cabbage with thin slices of apple and oranges are the main ingredients in this cabbage and apple slaw.

 

The sweet and tart orange and honey dressing balanced with pepper adds more flavor to the raw vegan cabbage salad

The oranges truly make a difference, especially when you add them to the vinaigrette as well.
