Game Day #4: Apple Coleslaw

It's day four of my Super Bowl Party Menu Extravaganza, and I made an executive decision to showcase a great party recipe for the female football fans out there. Not every dish on the menu needs to be fatty, greasy, meaty and "manly." Plus, I love salads and side dishes, and always try to include one when menu-planning.

This Apple Coleslaw is on the healthier and lighter side, and it is one of my favorite coleslaws. It's a great side dish to any party, get-together or cook out. And it's super easy to throw together. (Only four ingredients!)

This dish can even be made the night before, so party day isn't too hectic. And we all want to spend more time with friends and family watching football (and the commercials) than in the kitchen making food. * If making the night before, the next morning add a little extra Miracle Whip and honey just before serving if the slaw looks too dry.

The honey gives this coleslaw a lighter and fresher taste. I prefer mine with a little freshly ground black pepper. It gives it a bite. Delicious!

**Bonus: This slaw can easily be doubled or tripled. Be sure to make plenty because it will be devoured...even the men will go back for seconds.

Apple Coleslaw

Serves 12 (1/2 c each)

3/4 c Miracle Whip
1 Tbsp honey
1 pkg (16 oz) coleslaw blend
1 Red Delicious apple, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, chopped (the different colors make the slaw pretty....but you can use whatever you have on hand)

Mix dressing and honey in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Refrigerate one hour.
