This Apple Coleslaw is the perfect fall side dish or topping to a sweet pulled pork sandwich!
Did you see my pulled pork tacos yesterday? I used an apple bourbon flavor but really wanted the apple to be the star of the show. That’s why I decided to top things off with this delicious apple slaw! It is AMAZING. The poppy seed dressing is what really pushes this to the top. A touch of honey bring the two opposing flavors together and creates a wonderful balance.
Originally I was planning on using all apples and no cabbage but that resulted in a bit of a juicy mess. The cabbage creates the slight bitter taste that’s needed to create that good balance. This dish is perfect for a fall picnic. Get out there and take advantage of all of these wonderful temperatures! Pack this with some sweet pulled pork, corn on the cob, maybe a quick veggie salad and you have got a meal that is ready to share.
One little tip before we dive in… When you shred your apples there is a small chance that it will turn into a bit of a mess. Still stir the juices and apple bits into your slaw. It adds a fun flavor that you won’t want to miss and I don’t want you to get discouraged if it doesn’t shred into perfect little strands.
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2-3 tablespoons poppy seeds

Combine the vinegar, mayonnaise, poppy seeds, honey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk until fully incorporated.
