Coleslaw with Mustard and Apples is one of my all time favorite recipes for just about any meal.
One thing that I love about this recipe is that it is simple and incredibly versatile. This is perfect from holiday meals to casual summer parties. Last week, I made Oyster Dressing to go with my favorite Fried Turkey recipe and include the Coleslaw with Mustard and Apples into this meal. The next day, I toasted sharp cheddar on a piece of wholegrain bread topped it with turkey and coleslaw and had one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. It is great with BBQ sandwiches as well! Try this with my Turkey Burger as well.
The tanginess of the mustard marries beautifully with the sweetness that the apples bring to the table. The balance of flavors are amazing. I love that I can go right into the garden and get almost every ingredient that is necessary for this coleslaw recipe! I hope you get as much use from it as I have gotten! Let me know!
