The addition of ingredients like green apple, walnuts and whole parsley leaves gives this side dish a more elegant spin. There's nothing wrong with a basic cabbage slaw, but when you're looking to dress up the picnic table, you've found your accomplice.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 head red cabbage, sliced thinly (about 6 cups)
  • Kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced thinly on the bias
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored, cut in half and sliced very thinly
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Toss the cabbage with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon sugar in a colander set over a bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes. Discard any liquid that collects in the bowl.

Combine the shallots and cider vinegar in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the buttermilk, mayonnaise, mustard, remaining 1/4 teaspoon sugar and cayenne.

Gently squeeze any excess moisture from the cabbage. Add the cabbage to the dressing bowl, along with the parsley, walnuts, celery and apples. Toss and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper if desired.
