Green Apple and Blue Cheese Coleslaw with Toasted Walnuts

Serves: 8

Fresh, light and tasty, our mayonnaise-free coleslaw is the perfect dish for picnics or any summer celebration. Amber agave nectar lends rich sweetness to the dressing without the “sugar rush” of refined sugar. For perfect slices and shreds, use a mandoline or box shredder.


  • 1 1/4 cups grapeseed oil
  • 1/3 cup organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons amber agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons sweet onion, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 cups organic red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 organic Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 large organic carrot, shredded
  • 1 bunch organic green onions, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup organic walnut pieces, toasted
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk blue cheese, crumbled


Place first six ingredients in a blender; pulse to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Combine cabbage, apple, carrot and green onions. Toss with just enough dressing to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Add walnuts and blue cheese before serving.
