I just have a quicky side dish to share today.  I made this last night to have with our grilled turkey and cheese sandwiches and cantaloupe.  Despite the terrible picture, this slaw tasted really yummy.  I loved the flavor of the dressing and the crunch of the apples and almonds.

Crunchy Apple Slaw
Slightly adapted from Pennies on a Platter


  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip Light
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (approx the juice of 1/2 lemon)
  • 1/2 smallish head of green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 pink lady apple, sliced into matchstick-type pieces
  • 2 green onions, whites and most of greens, chopped
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup toasted chopped almonds
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • black pepper to taste


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together Miracle Whip, sugars, vinegar and lemon juice.
  2. Stir in the cabbage, apples, and green onions.  Toss to thoroughly coat with dressing.  Season with black pepper to taste.
