Green Apple and Asparagus Slaw

From Author Victor Bourchard

Needing to bring a salad to an outdoor patio dinner I stumbled upon this and knew it was going to be a winner.  It's refreshing, light, sweet and a little tart all at the same time.  Asparagus was definitely an unusual ingredient to see in a slaw but it worked.  Not to mention that every ingredient in this is green so in the end there were so many shades of green that it just looked refreshing.


1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar

2 TBSP Honey

1 Oz. Freshly chopped basil

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1 TSP Kosher Salt

Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl and whisk.  I prefer to toss everything into a Pint sized mason jar and just give it a good shake.

1 Pound Asparagus, sliced thin lengthwise

1 Large Granny Smith Apple Julienne Slice with skin on.

10 Oz Finely shredded Green Cabbage

Green Onions cut into 2 inch sections, sliced lengthwise.

small bunch of fresh chives, cut into 2 inch lengths

Toss the above veggies together into a large bowl and toss with the dressing.  Season with Salt and Pepper and serve.  Because of the acidity in the dressing this can be tossed and made ahead by about 3 hours.
