In the South, cole slaw is a must at big get-togethers. To modernize it, I add my favorite Arkansas Black apples and swap more than half of the usual mayo with yogurt, but it's still that classic Southern slaw that everyone loves.



  1. For the salad: Cut the cabbage around the core and julienne. Place in a large bowl and set aside. Core and julienne the apples and add them to the cabbage. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Add the scallion and celery to the cabbage/apple mixture.
  2. For the dressing: Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, half the lime juice, vinegar, cumin, and pepper in a small bowl. Add the remaining lime juice to the cabbage/apple mixture to prevent the apples from oxidizing. Season the dressing with salt to taste. Pour over the cabbage/apple mixture and set aside. Roughly chop the parsley and mint and add to the slaw. Toss to coat and let rest several minutes for the flavors to macerate. (Slaw can be made and refrigerated up to two hours in advance.)
  3. Place slaw in a dish and serve.
