Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw with Cider Yogurt Dressing Recipe

  • 3/4 cup clear apple cider or apple juice
  • 3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leafed parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill leaves
  • 1/2 medium head red cabbage (about 1 pound)
  • 1 large fennel bulb (sometimes called anise; about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 English cucumber
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  1. In a small saucepan boil cider or juice until reduced to about 3 tablespoons, about 15 minutes. Cool cider or juice slightly and in a bowl whisk together with yogurt, parsley, and dill. Dressing may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
  2. Halve cabbage lengthwise and with a mandoline or sharp knife cut crosswise into very thin shreds. Trim fennel stalks flush with bulb, discarding stalks, and cut fennel and cucumber into 1/4-inch dice. Vegetables may be prepared up to this point 4 hours ahead and chilled separately, covered.
  3. Just before serving, cut apples into julienne strips and transfer with vegetables to a large bowl. Toss salad with dressing.
