Summer Slaw

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post...not much cooking on the home front here, which is why I have 4 heads of cabbage in my fridge! I put together the following slaw and ate it over leftover cornbread. Super yummy--and I think it will be even better tomorrow.

2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 T honey
1 T dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 head of white/green cabbage, shredded
1/2 head red cabbage, shredded
a whole bunch of carrots, shredded
1 apple (not so much a summer fruit, but I can afford 1 this time of year every other week!), shredded
1/4 cup cranberries (optional, but kid friendly at our house!)
1/4 cup walnuts (optional)

I mixed my vinaigrette first (vinegars through oil) in a glass jar with tight fitting lid (put it all in, shake it all up) and let it sit while I shredded the other ingredients. Put it all together in a bowl and mix well. It makes a good bit, so it's a nice thing to prepare and eat for several days. Enjoy!
