I am the only one in my family that likes traditional cole slaw. Because of that, I rarely make it. When, on the rare occasion, we buy a bucket of chicken from KFC we always choose mashed potatoes and gravy (how could you not choose this) and mac and cheese (which the boys like but it is just a too little radioactive orange to look appealing to me). If it is just my wife and I getting chicken, I can get the cole slaw.
This does not stop me from making different kinds of slaw. I make a mean Asian slaw but those flavors don’t work with all main dish items. This recipe is another take that brings the fresh flavor of apple to bear.
A crisp, tart and sweet flavor.
It calls for black truffle oil. I only had white truffle oil, but made it work. It takes time to juiliene the apples.
The roasted garlic.
The dressing. I used my immersion blender to make it.
Fruity and refreshing!
