We're home from the beach! We had an amazing week -- click here for a few photos -- but boy am I glad to be back home in my kitchen. My body is seriously craving some vegetables!
Of course The Husband wanted to order in tonight for dinner. I get it. It was a long day. We have no food in the fridge. The house is a mess. The kids have been on our last nerve. It makes sense, but I couldn't do it. I needed to eat something I made at home and it had to be light. I literally started the day with a humongous slice of 3 Brothers pizza and a Kohrs custard cone, both of which constituted 75 percent of my diet for the past week.
I'm so over it!
So I ran out to run a few errands and picked up this bag of cole slaw mix for a quick salad.
It was $2 and I used to make it the most amazing slaw ever! Honestly, I almost ate the whole bowl one serving at a time.
I love buying heads of cabbage but boy these bags come in handy when you're feeling lazy. And really, what's the difference? It's just handy cabbage and carrots all cleaned and cut for you!
Here's what I did...
- 1 16 oz bag of cole slaw mix
- 100g of spinach
- 1 medium delicious apple
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp honey (42g)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp kosher salt
Pour the bag of slaw mix in a large bowl.
Chop the spinach in thin strips.
Slice the apple thin. You could make sticks but I left then larger. I wanted them to stand out from the cabbage.
Add the spinach and apple to the bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, oil, honey, and salt to make the dressing.
Pour the dressing over the apples, spinach and slaw. Toss.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
I'm basing the servings on the bag of cole slaw mix. They claim 5 - 2 cup servings.
