Apple Caraway Sauerkraut Slaw

It's been a while since I've done a quickie - fast to make with a few ingredients - a few words to tell about it. It's time!
Apple Caraway Sauerkraut Slaw is perfectly designed for Autumn. As fall is a segue between warm and cold weather, this slaw combines a fresh and crunchy summer cabbage slaw with sweet apples and tart cool weather sauerkraut.  The essence of autumn in a slaw, for sure.

Instead of a creamy dressing, a vinegar, sugar and honey dressing accents the mix. There's not much vinegar needed in the dressing compared to the amount of sugar and honey - sauerkraut helps to balance what might initially seem like too much sweetness. 

Can't you just imagine this tart/sweet treat on top of a beautifully browned brat or hot dog OR as a spiffy side dish?! Yeah, me too. With no further adieu....enjoy!

 Apple Caraway Sauerkraut Slaw

  • 4 cups store-bought coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 green pepper, slivered into 3/4" pieces
  • 3/4 cup store-bought sauerkraut
  • 1 small tart apple, skin on, cut into slivers

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey - you know I like my organic orange blossom honey!
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds

Combine all the dressing ingredients. Set aside.

Combine all the slaw ingredients. Pour dressing over slaw. Mix very well. Serve.

That's it!

Told you it was a quickie!
