Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw

Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw, the perfect way to introduce a raw kale salad to the family! Plus this salad is so good, you don't need to be worried about anyone NOT liking it! Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw, not too sweet, and everyone I know loves guess is, so will you.

I am not shy about my frugal beliefs and ways to manage creatively, and this salad is proof that frugal can also be delicious. The act of frugal food management is preparing and enjoying food while using what you already have on hand, in a timely manner. This may include a bit of a trial and (possible) error. But I will tell you right now, this is also a fun and delicious way to let your creative juices flow! 

Just a few ingredients needed for Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw.

Cooking on the fly is not new. Your grandmother did it every day in her kitchen. It can also be a fun journey for you to follow, in your own modern kitchen. I invite you to honor your family's past and, cook with what you have. Because that is exactly how this salad came to be...what are you waiting for? 

This salad can be made in the morning for lunch or dinner later that day. Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw remains crispy, with a nice crunch, and does not end up swimming in too much dressing. Plus Kale Apple and Carrot Slaw can be easily turned into a main dish salad with the addition of some diced ham or roasted chicken...which is the way I dress up leftovers, turning them into lunch the next day.

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • Tuscon kale
  • carrots
  • apple
  • raisins
  • yogurt or sour cream
  • mayonnaise
  • apple cider vinegar
  • brown sugar, you can make your own if desired, recipe found here
  • salt and pepper
You will also need the following:
  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • grater
  • carrot peeler
  • measuring spoons
  • mixing bowl 
  • serving bowl
Now we are ready to begin!

  1. Looks like a yummy and healthy salad. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

  2. This looks good. We have a couple kale salads we like, but I think I may need to try this slaw.

    1. It is enjoyable, and perfect the next day as a main course salad with diced ham or chicken...thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

    2. Kale and carrots are so full of all kinds of vitamins especially for the eyes! What a great combination. I can only imagine how good it tasted. It's on my list.

    3. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! I often come up with spur of the moment salads like this one, especially when we just got this week's CSA box!

  3. I absolutely love kale in a salad! Made one yesterday, actually! But I like the addition of the carrots, because it brightens it up so nicely!

    Thanks for sharing this at the Homestead Blog Hop! Keep cooking and sharing!
