Clean New Year - Apple Cabbage Slaw

Another new year, another chance to be better in life. After a very fun family Christmas trip to Florida my body was craving some clean, refreshing produce. When I found myself with a head of red cabbage and some apples on the counter, I mixed up this cold and crispy slaw as a side to some potato leek soup.

I think that red cabbage is beautiful. The color is incredible, and it tints everything the prettiest pinkish purple. Mixed with the green apples this salad is zingin'. And minus the small amount of sugar, there is nothing in this that is bad for you. This is a zero food guilt dish. So eat it to your heart's content!

Apple Cabbage Slaw
1 Granny Smith apple
1/2 head of red cabbage
1/4 cup toasted walnuts or pecans
juice of 1 small lemon
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp nonfat plain greek yogurt
1 tsp sugar
large pinch of salt
additional sugar to taste

1. Chop apple and cabbage into small, bite sized pieces. Mix with nuts in medium bowl.
2. Mix remaining ingredients [minus additional sugar] with a whisk until yogurt is well incorporated. Toss with apple and cabbage. Sprinkle with additional sugar and/or salt to taste. Let stand for 15 minutes in fridge.
