How long will this apple coleslaw keep in the refrigerator?

This apple coleslaw will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Use an airtight glass container to maintain freshness.

Can I add any other ingredients to this apple coleslaw recipe?

Absolutely! This recipe can be easily customized to your liking. You can add sliced almonds or other nuts, raisins, or dried cranberries. Even chopped bacon to give it a different twist and texture.

Can I use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar?

Yes, you can use white vinegar if you prefer. However, apple cider vinegar gives this coleslaw a tangy and slightly sweet flavor that pairs well with the other ingredients.

How do you keep apples from turning brown in coleslaw?

To keep apples from turning brown in coleslaw, you can toss them with lemon juice or any other acidic fruit juice like lime juice, orange juice, or pineapple juice. The acid helps to slow down the oxidation process which causes the apples to turn brown.

Another option is to add the apple slices to a bowl of cold water with some lemon juice, and then drain and pat them dry before adding to the coleslaw. This will also help to prevent browning.

It’s important to note that while browning doesn’t affect the taste of the apples, it can affect the appearance of the coleslaw. So taking these simple steps can help to keep your apple coleslaw looking fresh and appetizing.
