This refreshing, brightly-colored slaw from Diane Morgan’s Roots is a snap to do-ahead.
2 cups finely shredded green cabbage
2 cups coarsely grated carrots (or carrots cut into matchsticks)
1 crisp red apple, cored and cut into matchsticks
2 teaspoons finely-snipped fresh chives
¼ cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon or orange juice
1¼ teaspoons fine sea salt
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
2 tablespoons honey
1. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, oil, lemon or orange juice, salt, honey and poppy seeds. Set aside. (Can be prepared up to 1 day ahead.)
2. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrots and apple. Spoon the dressing over the top and toss to distribute evenly. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the chives.
