Crunchy Winter Slaw

Hi friends! Welcome to the first recipe of 2019. I’m thrilled to see where the blog takes me this year with more fabulous recipes, trendy fashion for moms and travel for our family. In the meantime, let’s get to this Crunchy Winter Slaw.

We are a family that devours apples by the bunches on a weekly basis. Some of us like them whole, sliced or dipped in caramel sauce. I decided to take our love for this amazing fruit by adding it to a crunchy winter slaw. This winter slaw has a combination of some of my favorite fruits and vegetables. For this recipe, you will need apples, dried cranberries, walnuts, broccoli, and cabbage.

I decided to take a simple approach to the dressing by adding vinegar, sugar, and salt together but you can feel free to incorporate your own dressing for this side dish. 

The apple I chose in partnership with Michigan Apples is the GALA variety. Yes, I finally strayed from my beloved Honeycrisp. This apple has a crisp, snappy bite over a mellow of sweetness. If you live in the Southwest Area like me, you can find their apples in H-E-B, Kroger, Walmart, and Whole Foods. You can read all about my trip to the Michigan apple orchards in this post
