With carrots, apples and a light (no-mayo) dressing, our slaw recipe pairs perfectly with just about everything. You’ll love it!

This slaw is fresh and crisp, with a unique sweet and sour flavor. Plus, you can use its amazing lemon and thyme vinaigrette on any salad, so make a little extra.

We used Granny Smith green apples for their tart taste and affordable pricing. You can make this slaw even quicker if you buy a bag of shredded carrots.
