Green Apple Slaw Recipe

Green Apple Slaw Recipe

Here's an appealing new take on a summertime classic. Our kids like the crunchy texture of Granny Smith apples and toasted pecans, while we like the ease of using a packaged coleslaw mix. This slaw is great with Asian Pulled Pork Sandwiches.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash of cayenne (optional)
  • 6 cups coleslaw mix (a 1-pound bag)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and cayenne, if using. Stir in the coleslaw mix, apples, pecans, and raisins.
  2. Taste for seasoning and adjust with more salt and pepper if desired. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before serving. Serves 8 to 10.
