Brussels Sprout Apple Slaw
In Autumn you can still enjoy a delicious light creamy slaw as a side dish. Things such as brussels sprouts and flavorful local apples lend themselves well to a slaw, and even hold up a bit better than the traditional cabbage. I am sharing a vegan recipe here with a creamy dressing that is just as delicious as its mayo cousins. It uses raw cashew butter for richness, lemon for a bit of tart and honey to add sweetness. It goes wonderfully with the brussels sprouts and sweet apples. I added some cranberries for color as well and pine nuts for crunch, but if you are making this feel free to use your favorite nut. This makes a wonderful healthy alternative to the usual slaw, and it is just as delicious!

In a large bowl, combine the brussels sprouts, apples, pine nuts and cranberries. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until smooth, adding water (by the Tablespoon) as needed to create a creamy dressing consistency. Toss the dressing with the salad until coated and serve!
