  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (use white or cider)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 pound coleslaw mix
  • 1 small bunch scallions chopped (green parts only)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple chopped fine (or julienned)
  • 1 red apple chopped fine (or julienned)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Add the mayo, sour cream, sugar, vinegar, lime juice, and some salt & pepper to a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. Give it a taste and adjust ingredients if needed to suit your tastes (e.g. add more sugar or vinegar).
  2. Prep your apples and scallions. 
  3. Add the coleslaw mix to a large bowl, along with the apples and scallions. Pour the dressing over top and toss until combined. Season with extra salt & pepper as needed (this is a fairly big salad so I am generous with both). 
  4. Coleslaw can be served immediately or chill it for a few hours first.
