This dish was our veggie side of choice until the garden started producing stuff for us to eat. I think it was the first slaw I've made that Mrblocko actually liked. I got so excited that he liked it that I made it so often we got a bit sick of it. I'm sure come spring we will be craving it again along side a big fat juice burger right off the grill.

1 medium sized Fuji apple, julienned

in large bowl combine first 3 ingredients. In small bowl combine dressing ingredients. toss slaw mixture with dressing. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
Notes: We like our slaw on the dry side. If you like a more runny slaw, feel free to double the dressing ingredients. Also, make sure to taste the dressing before putting it on the veggies. For some reason, each batch I've made requires a different amount of honey.
