Apple slaw by AK

Slaw mix
1 Head of cabbage- thinly shredded                          \ Or use 1 bag of
1 large carrot- Julienned on mandolin or by hand      / pre shredded slaw mix
3-4 Medium apples- skin on thin strips (approx. same size as carrot)
    We only have Granny Smith but red would give more color, honey crisp would give color and sweetness

Dressing(approx using eye ball measurements):
3/4 cup Cider Vinegar
3/4 Applesauce
1/4 cup sugar
Splash of olive oil
salt and pepper

Shred the components for the slaw in a mixing bowl.  Combine the dressing in a separate bowl.  Add half the dressing to the cabbage mixture and mix, slowing keep adding the dressing until everything is well coated.

Tip:When I cut the apple, I put it in a container for 5-10 minutes with the juice from one lemon and water.  This helps keep the apples from turning brown so quickly.  The vinegar in the dressing helps too, but for extra insurance to keep it looking fresh for the 3 days the grill is open.

Note: I used red cabbage because I had it; it gives nice color but the second day the cabbage bleeds and all turns red.
