This jalapeno apple slaw is so flavorful and crunchy - two essential qualities I need out of a slaw. It really takes an average meal and gives it some extra zing. I also love spending time making something and knowing it’s going to last for more than one meal.
I always start craving it during late spring or summer barbecue season on fish tacos, hot dogs, burgers or even a great side dish and because it's so versatile - it carries me right through football season on pulled pork sliders!
I hope you give it a try…
Jalapeno Apple Slaw Prep time: 10 minutes
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup buttermilk
⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Zest from one lime
1 bag of coleslaw mix (Or make your own with shredded green cabbage, red cabbage and carrots.)
1-2 large jalapenos, seeds removed and finely diced (The seeds contain the most heat so if you want your slaw extra spicy - leave some in! Use a spoon to remove them or wash your hands thoroughly after touching the pepper.)
1 granny smith apple, cored and finely diced
Whisk together all the dressing ingredients and store in a mason jar.
Combine all the slaw ingredients together in a large bowl and mix. Pour the dressing over the top - enough to coat (you will most likely have dressing leftover.)
