At first, cut cabbage into strips. Put cabbage into the bowl, add some salt, and mix.
Wash carrots and apples, peel them, cut into strips, or grate.
Apples should preferably be hard, juicy, and sour— they taste the best in the salad.
After cutting, sprinkle the ingredients with some lemon juice to keep the attractive white colour of the flesh.
Add carrots and apples to the cabbage.
So, let us make the dressing. Mix sour cream with mustard and horseradish, add some salt and pepper. Mix it all well and dress the salad.
It is preferable to serve the appetizer right after making it as vegetables can lose too much juice and soften. Coleslaw tastes wonderfully with baked meat and potatoes. Also, it is a great seasonal addition to grilled dishes!
