Apple Coleslaw



The winner of the $40 CSN Giveaway is Jennifer from Weight Loss Journey - Getting Healthy!  I so hope she can use it for something awesome! 

I love coleslaw. And I love to combine different flavors to make new salads!  I am more of a celery and cucumber fan in salads.  The husband and my brother both prefer green pepper. So I made this for them. It wasn't my favorite but they both liked it a lot.


We ate this salad with the most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches with a caramelized red onion jam.  It was an excellent meal.  

This is linked with Works For Me Wednesday over at We Are THAT Family. Even though it wasn't MY favorite salad, it made the others happy so that definitely works for me!

This is also linked with What's For Dinner? over at Hon, What's For Dinner?  And No Whine Wednesday at Food On The Table.  The family for sure didn't whine over this one!  Also over at What's on the Menu Wednesday at Dining with Debbie.  Great recipes!  Check them out!

  2. I think I'll have to try this. I love coleslaw since it can be made the night before...I guess I might just need to add the apples at the last minute so they don't turn brown.
