We love slaw as a side for fish, barbeque, and sandwiches. This fresh-tasting slaw is great for family meals and it’s nice enough for casual entertaining. A nice bonus is that it’s very inexpensive. Mmmm . . . slaw with baked beans goes with so many foods.
It makes about 5-6 cups of slaw, depending on how big the cabbage is. The recipe says it serves 4, but that would be almost 1 1/2 cups of slaw per person. If you estimate how much each person will eat, you will have a better idea of how many it will serve.
Of course you can buy a bag of shredded cabbage and carrots to save time. Just add the chopped apple and dressing. Let the slaw chill in the fridge for at least an hour to meld the flavors. It can be made the night before if you like.

A reviewer there said to use just 1-2 teaspoons of the minced onion so that it doesn’t drown out the lemon flavor.
Give this one a try and see if it becomes your new favorite cole slaw. You could add raisins and/or crushed pineapple to it to make it even more fruity if you like. That will increase the amount of slaw overall, but it will also make it more yummy. Experiment a bit to find the combination you and your family like best. Cabbage is so full of vitamins and fiber; this could be a good way to get the family to eat it more often. Fruit is very enticing!
