Apple Cabbage Coleslaw With Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Apples and braised cabbage is the classic flavor pairing that inspired this salad. Traditional mayonnaise is replaced with poppy seed vinaigrette, which adds a great contrast of color and flavor. Full-fat yogurt is also a great substitute for mayo-based coleslaws.


Makes six servings


  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs. honey
  • 2 tsp. Dijon-style mustard
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbs. poppy seeds


  • 3 cups shredded savoy cabbage
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 thinly sliced gala apples

For the vinaigrette: Combine the garlic, vinegar, honey and mustard in a blender. While the blender is running, slowly drizzle in the oil to create a creamy vinaigrette. Stir in poppy seeds by hand.

For the salad: In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, onion and apples. Pour dressing over and mix well.
