With picnic and cookout season in full swing, this delicious Green Apple and Cabbage Slaw is perfect to have on hand for your next summer gathering!

In this recipe, I added green apples for an extra bit of crunch and tartness, and a light touch of sweetness. The crisp fruit is an amazing addition to this cabbage-based dish.

Refreshing and bursting with flavor, your family won’t even notice this coleslaw recipe skips the mayo and eggs. Trust me, it’s so yummy they will be adding another spoonful to their plates!

And whether you’re cooking for one or your entire family, you can easily double and even triple this recipe to accommodate your guest list.

I already have plans to add this Green Apple and Cabbage Slaw to my upcoming party menus, and I hope you will too!
