Kale and Apple Slaw

The marriage of kale and apples is a happy one. I've got nothing else to say about this except that it was as delicious as you'd expect. I've made it three times this week already.

Kale-Apple Coleslaw with Poppy Seed Dressing

-adapted from

For the dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds (I didn't have them so didn't use them)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup small-dice red onion (about 1/4 medium onion)

*this makes enough for 2 salads

Shake all ingredients together in a jar until emulsified

For the coleslaw:

  • 1 bunch of flat-leaf kale (aka lancinato or dino kale). If you use regular kale, just massage it for a few minutes with a bit of salt to break it down a bit.
