Recipe Notes

* Purchasing Cabbage:  Always choose fresh cabbage by weight, not the size of the cabbage head.  Choose firm heads that feel heavy for their size. Outer leaves should look fresh, have good color, and be free of blemishes.  Tip:  Can substitute 2 (10-ounce) bags of prewashed and shredded coleslaw cabbage to save time.

** Granny Smith, Fuji, Gala, and Honey Crisp apples all work well in this slaw recipe.
