Apple Coleslaw

I am a big fan of coleslaw. I am basically a fan of any mayonnaise based salad. Michelle Obama hates me, I take pride in this.

3 cups chopped green cabbage
3 cups chopped red cabbage
2 cups chopped apple (sweet ones work best)
1 cup mayonnaise (puppy kicking will commence if you use miracle whip)
2 tablespoons honey

  • If you have a food processor, and you definitely should, use it to chop the cabbage. If you don’t, proceed to make a big mess chopping cabbage.
  • Chop apple and add to the cabbage mix.
  • Whisk the mayonnaise and honey together. More honey can be added if you like it sweeter. You can also increase the amount of mayonnaise (or decrease the amount of cabbage) if you like more sauce on it.
  • Pour mayonnaise mixture into the cabbage and apple.  Mix well.
  • Serve cold.
  • Makes 8-10 servings

adapted from Kraft. I didn’t think their recipe had enough sauce or apple in it, but it was a good starting point.


The Best Potato Salad

This is the closest recipe I can find to the potato salads you buy in the deli at the grocery store (which I love and would buy all the time if I wasn’t a total cheap skate). It is completely horrible for you and absolutely delicious.

2 lbs potatoes
½ cup sweet or red onion
1/3 cup sweet relish
1 ¼ cups heavy mayonnaise (do not use miracle whip, I kick a puppy every time someone uses miracle whip)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (regular vinegar works too, it just gives it some tartness)
2 teaspoons yellow or Dijon mustard
1 ½ teaspoon salt
Hard boiled eggs

  • Wash potatoes, (peel if you want, I don’t) cut into cubes.
  • Boil for 15-20 minutes, until just soft.
  • In the meantime, combine the rest of the ingredients, except the eggs, and set aside.
  • Drain potatoes and let cool slightly.
  • Mix the mayonnaise mixture in with the potatoes. Add chopped boiled eggs.
  • Serve cold.
  • Makes about 8 servings

Original recipe is here. I changed it because I don’t like bacon contaminating my potato salad.
