Fall slaw for one

Because I cook for myself—and only myself—almost all of the time, I have trouble with recipes made for a crowd. Giant bowls of potato salad, pasta salad and my favorite Broccoli Crunch Salad are hard for me to polish off before they go bad.

My concerted effort to spend more time in the kitchen this month is paying off with a slew of new recipes to try. The one I’m sharing today, Fall Slaw, is a variation on the Fall Slaw with Asian Pears and Almonds that I found on GreenLiteBites.


Fabulous Fall Slaw | Arlene Hittle/Chicklets in the KitchenI didn’t try Roni’s version, mainly because there are no Asian pears at my house. However, my slaw also features some of the flavors of fall.

Better yet, it’s quick (courtesy of the bagged cole slaw mix), easy (for the same reason) and delicious (I think that has a lot to do with the apple cider in the dressing and the Honeycrisp apples mixed in with the cabbage).

I can eat the whole bowlful in one sitting. It makes a great, filling afternoon snack. If you’d like to feed a crowd, just double or triple the recipe.

  1. Wow, that sounds delicious. Thanks for the recipe, Arlene. I think I’ll try it next week at Thanksgiving. We’re all bringing something and I’d love to bring something besides dessert. 🙂
