Apple & Brussel Sprout Cole Slaw Sandwich

SweeTango Recipe Created by: A Cozy Kitchen

This cole slaw is all about acidity and texture. The apples are crunchy, the Brussels are a little crunchy and the acidity level is fun. Not too tart so you pucker, but enough so if you’re eating it atop sweet bbq you have some contrast. My favorite ingredient is the ground ginger. It’s so unexpected and subtle but makes something that’s super simple interesting.

8 Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and thinly sliced
1 SweeTango apple, peeled, cored and julienned
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
Pinch of ground ginger

To a medium bowl, add the Brussels sprouts and apple; gently toss together. In a small bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, mustard, a few pinches of salt and pepper and a pinch of ground ginger. Whisk together using a fork. Add to the apple and Brussels mixture and toss, making sure it’s evenly coated. Give it a taste and adjust the salt and pepper accordingly. Serve as a side or on top of pulled pork sandwiches.
