Almost Not Cooking #3

We were having BBQ sliders for supper and I wanted slaw to go with them.This slaw only requires a little measuring and dicing one apple and then stirring it all together. If you don't take forever to dice the apple, this is quick to make. I was done in six minutes. It would have only taken five, but I had to refill the sugar bowl.

If your knife skills aren't great, consider taking the free Complete Knife Skills class from Craftsy. Yes, it's free! Even if you only watch the first two of the four lessons, you'll learn a lot. It's like having a front row seat at a cooking class.

This cole slaw is such a light, fresh dish. Different from the mayonnaise based slaw I often make. I like them both. If you aren't a mayo fan, try this one.


14-oz bag cole slaw mix
handful of chopped fresh parsley
1 apple, chopped
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 
salt & pepper to taste

Toss cole slaw mix, parsley and apple in a large bowl. 
Measure oil in a glass measuring cup.*
Add sugar and vinegar and stir until sugar is dissolve. 
Pour over slaw mix and stir to combine. 
Refrigerate for a while to let flavors blend.

* This time I mixed the dressing in the large bowl and then added other ingredients and tossed. One less thing to wash. 

I cringe when I watch my daughters cut almost anything. It's one of my failures as a mother. I obviously didn't teach them how to use a knife. Okay, daughters! Watch the free class!!! Before you bleed on the vegetables.


  1. What! My knife skills are great! (With the exception of peeling apples.)

    1. :-) Sorry. Guess the apple peeling is just vivid in my mind!


I love it when you say hello here! Next best thing to stopping by for a visit.
