Apple Cabbage Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing and Walnuts

A long name, but the time to say it and make it are worth it. This is the perfect fall salad. I've made a "light" version, but you can use regular mayo for the dressing and butter to candy the walnuts...I won't tell.

  1. Once the onions are sliced, put them into a large bowl. Add about a tablespoon of the vinegar and toss to coat them. Allow to sit for 10 minutes or so.
  2. Add the sliced apples to the bowl and sprinkle a bit more of the vinegar over them. Toss to combine with the onions and let sit 5 minutes more.
  3. Add the cabbage and the kosher salt to the bowl and toss to mix everything well. Set aside while you prepare the dressing.
  4. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the mayonnaise, honey, remaining vinegar and mustard. Shake well. Taste the dressing. If you like more sweetness add a packet or two of stevia. You could add more honey or agave if you prefer.
  5. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss to coat everything. Cover and refrigerate for several hours.
  6. Heat a small fry pan over medium heat. Coat the pan generously with the butter cooking spray. Add the walnuts to the pan and sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon and sea salt over them. Toss to coat the walnuts. Cook for 5 minutes or so stirring often to prevent burning. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Set aside until ready to serve the salad.
  7. At serving time, toss the salad and taste for seasoning. It's not to late to add a little salt or sweet. When it tastes wonderful, sprinkle the walnuts over the top and serve. This is wonderful with any pork dish, like bacon wrapped pork tenderloin.
