There’s no denying seasonal done right. And it only takes one look at the ingredients of this delicious slaw to know it’s a winner! Full of color and delightful crunch, the best of the season creates quite a forkful in this salad bowl. But I have to be honest with you, as much as I love all of the ingredients (did you see there is bacon?!?), it’s really all about the apple for me!
There’s just something about its sweet crispness against the zing of the dijon vinaigrette, the salt of the bacon and the stout richness of fall veggies like broccoli and brussel sprouts that just makes all the difference. I know the recipe only calls for 1-1 1/2 apples, but why limit goodness? I’m thinking 2 makes this broccoli slaw even better!
And let’s talk about that Dijon vinaigrette. With an olive oil and red wine vinegar base, there is nothing heavy handed about it. Just a light toss and the slaw is ready to go.
So why not put a little seasonal yum on the table this week? No matter the weather, there’s always a little fall that can be enjoyed!
