Apple & Dried Cherry Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a dish that is always on the table during the summer. This Apple & Dried Cherry Coleslaw is made with Greek yogurt instead of mayo and is lightly sweetened with a bit of honey. It’s full of fresh apples and dried cherries, and pairs perfectly with just about anything. 

Summer fast-approaching, which means it’s time to dust off the patio furniture and fire up the grill. I’ve actually had my grill out for a few weeks now and take every chance I get to grill our dinner. Burgers, steak, chicken, even veggies, I love grilling season! Less time in the kitchen, less mess to clean up, and more time with family and friends. Isn’t that what summer is all about?

Nutrition Tip: Did you know that apples are included in the rose family? This delicious fruit is rich in a type of fiber termed pectin, which feeds the good bacteria found in your gut.

I like to focus on fresh and simple side dishes, too. Locally grown fruits and vegetables are abound at our farmers markets, which is one of my favorite things about this time of year. I go a little “produce crazy” sometimes!

Did I mention this coleslaw takes just minutes to prepare? I think this is a dish that will be on my table all summer long!
