Thai-Inspired Green Apple Slaw

Thai-Inspired Green Apple Slaw

I came up with this recipe on a night that we were having roast chicken with Thai sweet chili sauce and I had these super tart green apples that I couldn't get the fam to eat alone. (Or with cheese. Or peanut butter. Or anything.)

I went with a som tum (Thai green papaya salad) inspiration, and it was quite tasty with the roast chicken! It would also go great as a side to satay or as a fresh roll filling.



4 to 6 servings
  1. 3 small tart green apples, julienned (about 4.5 cups)
  2. 1/2 a small white onion, very thinly sliced
  3. 1 handful mint and cilantro, chopped
  4. 1 ripe Thai chili, thinly sliced (or any kind of hot, fresh chili you have on hand)
  5. 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  6. 1 Tablespoon sugar
  7. 1.5 Tablespoons lime juice
  8. 1 Tablespoon olive or vegetable-type oil
