This multicolored vegan slaw is tossed with a tangy Dijon vinaigrette and sweetened with freshly grated apple. Carrots and celery round out the salad with extra crunch and flavor. The slaw should be prepared no more than a few hours before serving, since the vinegar in the dressing will keep the apples from browning for a short time, but not for longer storage. For an even easier version, use pre-cut slaw mixes from the supermarket in place of the cabbage and carrots. You can also try making it with different types of vinegars, such as balsamic or raspberry. Serve as a side with sandwiches or veggie burgers.
