Most coleslaws, at least the ones I am used to in the UK come laden with lots of creamy high in fat mayonnaise, but you have to admit the creamy kind tastes rather good and oh do I miss it. Here in the US/Canada the coleslaw tends to be more vinegary and sweet, kind of a weird one to get accustomed too.
I wanted to come up with a coleslaw recipe that has that kind of creaminess and sweetness mixed together, the creaminess I kind of had figured, but wasn’t sure on what to add for some sweetness, until I spotted a juicy lady alice apple staring at me in the fruit bowl. It worked perfectly. and of course as usual I have kept the syns as low as possible.
This coleslaw is a great side for many dishes and is delicious in burgers, or even just as it is out of the bowl. Yes, I admit it, I did actually dig a spoon in and eat straight out of the bowl. I had to try it though right?
