Cabbage Apple Slaw with Maple Pecans

Cabbage Apple Slaw with Maple Pecans

(recipe slightly adapted from For the Love of Salad, by Jeanelle Mitchell)

Dressing:

Slaw:

Combine mustard, vinegar, oil and maple syrup in small jar. Add salt & pepper and shake! Place the chopped up cabbage, apples and pecans in a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette.

Maple Glazed Pecans:

Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, pecans and sprinkle with sea salt. Toss to coat well. Toast for 10-15 minutes. Let cool completely on a baking sheet. Break apart if necessary.

***Shutterbean Notes***

-If you want to make this in advance, add the pecans at the very end or they won't be crunchy!

-You can either chop up the pecans or leave them whole like I did. It might be easier to eat if you chop them up. Just saying.
