Sweet and Creamy Cabbage and Apple Slaw

YUM! This is my new favorite slaw, sweetened with apples, and delightfully delicious! It may very well be the best slaw I have ever tasted, and the dressing is pretty much miraculous, made with raisins and cashews, making it both sweet and creamy!

It’s my spin on a Cathy Fisher recipe in Straight Up Food. (Although she adds raisins to the slaw, I move the raisins to the dressing instead – plus I use less cashews to lower the fat, and I omit the red onions in the slaw, and leave out all of the fresh garlic in the dressing.) This is super good.

Perfect along with corn on the cob and Southwestern Bean Burgers – or piled high over Pulled Jackfruit in Spicy BBQ Sauce!
