APPLE COLESLAW

Coleslaw is a perfect accompaniment to so many dishes: burgers, chili, stews, etc. My sister-in-law, who entertained often in her younger days, always had a bowl of coleslaw on the table. And she set a very fancy, very sophisticated table.

There are lots of variations on simple coleslaw, and this is my variation. I like a little sweetness added, but I try to avoid sugar because I'm pre-diabetic. I love the flavor and sweetness that apples bring to the slaw. Try this and see if you don't agree that it's good.

INGREDIENTS:
1/3 cup low-fat mayo (I used Duke's, but I also like Hellmann's)
2 Tbsp. frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
big pinch of sea salt
3/4 cup Granny Smith apple, grated or finely chopped
1/2 pkg. Classic coleslaw mix (I used Dole's)

Combine first four ingredients in measuring cup or small bowl; stir well to mix. In large bowl, combine apple and coleslaw mix; pour dressing over; toss to distribute ingredients. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.

I love apple coleslaw, it's so much more exciting than normal coleslaw. And it's the perfect summer food.
