Apple Cabbage Slaw With a Zesty Citrus Dressing (AIP/Paleo)

Apple Cabbage Slaw With a Zesty Citrus Dressing (AIP/Paleo)

My hubby absolutely despises cabbage unless it is in coleslaw form. So, about once every other week or so we have coleslaw as a side with dinner.

However, ever since I started AIP I have stuck with the same basic recipe.

Well, as I began to experiment with fall flavors I decided to try an apple cabbage slaw. Around the same time, I was experimenting with a citrus pork recipe (which I will post soon) so I threw in a little citrus kick to the dressing and two paired perfectly!

I would definitely recommend this as a wonderful seasonal variation from the traditional idea of coleslaw. It was a big hit!
