1/2 lemon, juiced and zested optional

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 

1 Granny Smith apple

4 cups mayonnaise 

8 ounces blue cheese crumbled

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 

2 teaspoons dried thyme 

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 

1 teaspoon sea salt 

2 carrots, peeled and grated

1 head green cabbage, julienned 

1/2 head red cabbage, julienned


  1. Combine the vinegar, lemon juice and zest, if using, in a large mixing bowl. Cut the apple into a very small dice (brunoise) and immediately add it to the bowl to avoid browning. Add the mayonnaise, blue cheese, mustard, thyme, black pepper and sea salt to the bowl, and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  2. Combine the carrots, green cabbage and red cabbage in a separate large bowl.
  3. Dress the cabbage mixture with the mayonnaise dressing until evenly coated, but not drowning in dressing.

Cook’s Note

The leftover dressing can be stored in the refrigerator to use on salads or with crudite.
