The Labor Day Picnic 2010!

As the summer season winds down, we still are having mid summer weather and lots of sunshine.   Seems like every holiday in East Tennessee, we have a thunderstorm of major proportions.   

One of my all time favorites is Apple/Walnut Cole Slaw.   I will let you decide the proportions since everything in this salad is to taste!  After sure you get three to four hours in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly and the flavors combine!

Apple Walnut Cole Slaw

1  Granny Smith apple; peel, cored, diced
1  orange
1/2 head cabbage; chopped fine
1/2 c walnuts; toasted
  Slaw Dressing:
1/2 c mayonnaise; or more, as needed
2 tb heavy cream
2 tb Splenda Brown Sugar; or to taste
1 tb poppy seeds
  salt & pepper; to taste

Peel and chop apple.   Slice orange and juice over apple to prevent turning brown.   This acid does the same as lemon juice but the orange juice added needed sweetness.

Chop cabbage to your preference.  I prefer small dice...some like long strands to cabbage.   Toast chopped walnuts in a small skillet until golden, releases the oils in the walnuts and make them more fragrant.

In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, cream, Splenda, (or use  superfine sugar), if desired, poppy seeds.   Whisk until smooth adding a little more cream if necessary.    You may find you need a little more dressing...and you can add extra to your taste.

Add salt and pepper, to taste and refrigerate three hours or until flavors combine.
