For the Vinaigrette

For the Apple Slaw

  • 2 large apples

    chopped into thin matchsticks (note 2)

  • 1

    med. green cabbage shredded
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley minced
  • 1 cup green onions chopped


  • Prepare the dressing. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the whole grain mustard, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and grapefruit juice. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  • Combine the salad. In a large mixing bowl combine the shredded cabbage, apples, parsley, and chopped green onion. Drizzle with the prepared dressing and toss well to combine.
  • Season to taste. Season with additional salt, pepper, and grapefruit juice, if needed.


  1. The grapefruit juice was a last-minute addition that added really nice flavor. Feel free to substitute with fresh orange juice (approx. 2-4 tbsp), if preferred.
  2. I used Granny Smith Apples, but feel free to use your favorite apple variety or whatever may be available to you.
