This crisp, colorful apple and carrot slaw is a cinch to make and accompanies any dish beautifully. Preparing this dish takes less than ten minutes from start to finish, and it can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat.

Using freshly picked green apples combined with crisp carrots gives this slaw a sweet tart flavor that even your kids will eat up, too.

Apple and Carrot Slaw

This recipe makes plenty of leftovers that can be added to green salads or used as tasty toppings on tacos (my personal favorite). To cut down on time, you can pick up a bag of organic shredded carrots and sliced apples at the grocery store. Combine and toss with the vinaigrette and you’re done.
