Apple Walnut Coleslaw Recipe

Apple Walnut Coleslaw Recipe
No barbecue is complete without coleslaw. It can be put on sandwiches like pulled pork or turkey, served as a salad on the side, or served as a part of a salad buffet. There are hundreds of different varieties of coleslaw, some dressed with mayonnaise, some sweet, some savory, some dressed with vinaigrette – the possibilities are endless. Apple Walnut Coleslaw is a favorite; it has a light, slightly sweet sour cream dressing with lots of crunchy apples and toasted walnuts. You can also add raisins (or even dried cranberries) if it suits you.

This yummy coleslaw takes only 5-10 minutes to put together; packaged coleslaw mix saves a lot of time. Although toasting the walnuts brings out their flavor, you can just add plain ones if you’re short on time. To toast walnuts, place them on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 350º oven. Let bake until they start to smell good – 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool before adding them to the coleslaw.
