Franco American Apple Slaw

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 1 hr 40 mins

A little French technique applied to an American classic.


  1. Cut the apples into julienne (matchsticks), ending up with about 2 cups of apple.
  2. Cut the onion and the carrot similarly, ending up with about 1/2 cup of matchsticks of each.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients (except the celery seeds) to make the dressing.
  4. Toss the apples, carrots and onions gently in the dressing and chill for at least on hour.
  5. Remove the slaw from the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving.
  6. Sprinkle with celery seeds if desired.

This is one of the most delicious coleslaw recipes I've ever tried. The recipe was cut in half
and I added 1 cup of shredded cabbage and two varieties of apples: Granny Smith and Pink Lady. The optional celery seed was used and I wouldn't omit it. Good quality maple syrup is very important. Reviewed for Veg Tag/November.

This is going in permanent rotation - what a wonderful salad. The red onion mixed with the apple and carrots gives a beautiful snap to the taste - and the dressing is light and flavorful! thanks for a winner!!! Made for PAC Spring 2009!
