It is apple season! Time to use all the apples. If you don't care for endless jars of canned apple sauce around your house, then try using those apples in a salad! This is such a quick and simple recipe and it keeps well in the fridge so you can make a giant batch up and enjoy all week!


I have posted below two ways to make the salad, one uses pre-bought slaw and dressing, the other makes your own! Endless options as well as to what you put in the slaw. Except Mayo. Please don't use Mayo. 

Version 1: Buy the slaw and dressing: 

  • Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado Yogurt Dressing 
  • Manns Fresh Express Coleslaw
  • Raisins  
  • Chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
  • Apples 

Version 2: Make your own slaw and dressing:

  • Slaw: Red cabbage, carrots, celery, broccoli
  • Dressing: avocado, wasabi powder, soy sauce, lemon juice, grated fresh ginger
  • Raisins  
  • Chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
  • Apples 

Optional ingredients:

  • Black beans
  • Cilantro
  • Quinoa
  • Shredded fresh beets
  • Green onions

Directions:

  1. Boil the chicken breast and shred
  2. Chop the apples and toss in a bit of lemon juice so they don't go brown
  3. Add your slaw to a bowl (if you are making your own, then start shredding and dicing)
  4. Make up your dressing - if you are using the dressing in a jar, consider still mixing in some other ingredients from version 2 so it doesn't taste so store bought. 
  5. Mix everything together and let sit in the fridge for an hour or two. 
  6. Enjoy! Of course, serve with pepper and salt to taste (and hot sauce obviously)
