Sweet and Sour Slaw

This is a Hallelujah Acres recipe.  (You can find more of their delicious recipes at http://www.hacres.com).  It is so healthy, fresh, and tasty!  The combination of apples and onions with the veggies is outstanding.  I appreciate the dressing — it’s much lighter than traditional cole slaw dressings that rely on mayonnaise or sour cream as a base.  If  you use a food processor the prep time is much lower than chopping and shredding everything by hand.  Be warned: this recipe makes a HUGE amount.  I used fairly small cabbages and it made over a gallon of slaw — make it for a crowd!

Ingredients:

1/2 green cabbage, finely chopped

1/2 red cabbage, finely chopped

4 stalks celery, finely chopped

3 carrots, shredded

1 onion, finely chopped

2 apples, finely chopped

Dressing:

1/ cup raw honey

1/2 cup lemon juice or Bragg’s vinegar

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 – 2 tsp. sea salt

1 Tbsp. celery seed

Blend raw honey, lemon juice or vinegar, olive oil, and sea salt until smooth.  Stir in celery seed.  Pour dressing over prepared vegetables and apple.  Toss lightly to distribute dressing and set in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to allow flavors to mingle. Serve cold.
