Apple Slaw

The sweet-spicy Pink Lady apples complement the tartness of the cherries and the vinaigrette in this slaw, which is a natural companion for pork chops or ham. Cameo, Fuji, or Gala apples will also work well.


  • 1/4-1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 2 1/2 cups chopped Pink Lady or other sweet apple
  • 1 (12-ounce) package broccoli slaw
  • 1 (3-ounce) package dried tart cherries or dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seed kernels or pumpkin seeds

To prepare vinaigrette, combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

To prepare slaw, combine apple, broccoli slaw, and dried cherries. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss well to combine. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds; chill for up to 3 hours.
