From Dirt To Dinner :: Cabbage

yes, i am still here! but barely. summer is so busy! aren't we all out and about doing stuff and not spending so much time computing. . . or is it just me? it's not even like i'm doing so much as i'm NEEDED so much. 2 kids full-time and a really busy hubby = frazzled mama. trying to keep it all together, y'all.
speaking of keeping it together, we mixed up an awesome little cabbage and apple slaw for this weeks From Dirt To Dinner installment. i have to say we all enjoyed it. and it's hard to please this whole family, i tell you. unless we are eating ice cream. . .
so, here it is, our "recipe" for Apple Cole Slaw. we really didn't do a ton of measuring. . .and it was hard for us to find the cabbage from a local source, but eventually did at our Co-op. i missed the farmer's market where i'm sure i would have found many cabbagey options.

equal parts carrot and purple cabbage (local, of course!)
one large apple (organic!)
equal parts plain yogurt and mayo (you can adjust this ratio to your liking)
honey to taste
bit of lemon if you got it

in a large bowl, grate carrot and apple
finely chop cabbage add to bowl
in a small bowl combine mayo, yogurt, salt, pepper, honey and we thought later that lemon would have been nice, but we didn't have any--mix all that up well
pour dressing over veggies and stir it up. adjust salt and pepper to taste
super yummy on a hot day! and we've got plenty of those going on.

It's very pretty. I often forget about purple cabbage, but I do love it. I'll have to try this and see if I can get the kids to eat it. Mix it with apple and honey? Seems doable!

I added your link since I was lame and late with the post:)
