Kale, Apple and Carrot Slaw

There is just something about Apples in Autumn. I know most people like Pumpkin Spice, but not me. It’s fun to look at all the pumpkin spice flavored foods that come out during the Fall season but I’m not temped to buy any of it. 

I’m going to share with you a recipe that is not only good but it’s healthy and a great way to eat your greens and carrots. It is a struggle for me to eat veggies but if there is a veggie dish already made in the fridge, I will dip out a bowl of it with my meals. This recipe is a good one to make ahead and will stay fresh and crispy for a few days. It also includes Apples that give it just enough sweetness and crunch. 



Kale, Apple and Carrot Slaw.
1 head- chopped Kale.
1 apple- cored and small diced.
Handful- shredded carrots
Handful- raisins
Handful- chopped pecans (optional)

Dressing:
2 Tablespoons- plain Greek Yogurt
2 Tablespoons- mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon- brown sugar
1 Tablespoon- apple cider vinegar
Salt/pepper

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients.
Pour in the dressing and toss.
Cover and chill until meal time or over night.



Kale is healthy greens full of vitamins A,K,B6,E and C and antioxidants. It also contains calcium, copper and potassium. Together, these vitamins can help your skin look younger. It brightens your skin appearance and dark spots. Boy, I need a lot of this stuff but sadly it can also cause bloating and gas. Also, if your on blood thinners, don’t eat Kale without talking to your doctor because Vitamin K can interfere with that medicine. 

Now for the big question….
Are you more of an apple person or pumpkin spice person when it comes to those Fall favorites.

  1. Sounds and looks good. I forget how much the apple adds to a salad. I think the first time I remember this was at a fast food place. I am sure there were a lot of preservatives in it, but it taught me how good that little sweet added to a salad.
    Thanks, I do love raw veggies, BUT that apple does add bunches.
    Love from near the Catawba!
