Purple Apple Cole Slaw

Crystal ~


This is such a delicious and very pretty Cole slaw. It goes fabulous with pork of any kind. I chop the cabbage, onion, and apples in the food processor; separately. We like the texture of chopped better than shredded, but you can certainly shred the cabbage, if you prefer. This is not a slaw swimming in the dressing. If you prefer more dressing, adjust it to your liking
