Simple and Refreshing Apple + Cabbage Slaw

Some meals scream for a simple, refreshing slaw on the side, such as this chicken katsu or rose-harissa chicken. This recipe is a simple slaw that complements poultry or red meat so well.
For my kids who aren’t open to cabbage yet, I serve the food items (cabbage, apple, and dressing) separately. Munchkin nibbles at a shred of cabbage at this point, but it’s a step forward to eating a new food item.

I love this Innobaby Bus Plate with 5 compartments for serving deconstructed foods. This plate is made in South Korea, and if you didn’t know, South Korea makes great quality stainless steel. Use coupon code WhiteBlankSpace for 15% discount. (affiliate link)

Apple and Cabbage Slaw

Simple and refreshing slaw to complement poultry or red meat

Course Salad
Prep Time 20 minutes

Author whiteblankspace


  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup mayo I used kewpie
  • Juice from 1 large lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • A pinch of salt
  • Dash of milk
  • Half of a small cabbage
  • 2 red apples


  1. Make the dressing by mixing Greek yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, honey, salt, and milk. Set aside.
  2. Shred cabbage into thin slices. I used a mandoline slicer, but you can do this with a food processor using a shredding disc. (I find the pre-shredded cabbage from the stores too thick to my liking.) After shredding, I rinse the cabbage in a salad spinner.
  3. Cut apples into matchsticks.
  4. In a large bowl, add cabbage and apple sticks. Drizzle dressing on top and toss.
  5. For my kids, I serve cabbage, apple sticks, and the dressing (as a dip) separately.
