Crunchy Apple Slaw

I had the opportunity yesterday to head out to Cara’s house to participate in her Seder Plate Challenge. She invited some blogger friends out to share our dishes in person.

We were each asked to bring a dish inspired by one of the foods on the Seder plate. I’m not Jewish, so I was excited to learn more about the symbolism of each food. Be sure to check out Cara’s blog for all the information about the Seder plate.

I originally thought I’d do a dessert for the event, but a couple other people spoke up quickly and I decided to go with something else. I had a few ideas floating around in my head even up until Friday but hadn’t made my mind up yet. Then I saw this slaw pop up from Pennies on a Platter. I decided it would be a perfect creative interpretation of charoset. Since the slaw contains apples and almonds, it fit perfectly into the concept of taking something from the Seder plate and putting a creative spin on it. Check out Cara’s Seder plate with all of our goodies on it!

I looked at Nikki’s recipe and kind of just threw stuff together based on what I had on hand. It was definitely quite tasty and I’ll be making it again this summer when grilling becomes an every day event (can’t wait!).

The best part of the day was getting together with some lovely blogger friends to enjoy our food together. And, seeing Cara’s house with it’s huge kitchen! After eating, we sat around talking about blogging, sharing tips, and of course doing a bit of gossiping! Be sure to check out the recap on Cara’s blog. And for one last photo, you know you’re eating with a bunch of bloggers when you see this in the dining room…

    fig vinegar? i am assuming this is the balsamic vinegar?

      I fixed the recipe to be consistent. Any dark flavored vinegar that you enjoy would be perfect in this recipe.

      Me too. In fact it’s pretty much the only way I prepare veggies…

    I love roasted veggies, especially beets! Looks beautiful.

      Beets are one of my favorites too. Can you believe I had never had one until a couple years ago?!?

    I used 4 tbs butter and 4 tbs olive oil.
    Tossed vegatables, oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, 2 tsp or so dry sage and 2 tsp or so dry rosemary in large bowl and then spread on two baking sheets.
    Roasted for 30 minutes and then rotated cooking sheets in oven and roasted for another 30 minutes. No stirring required

    Added 4 smoked Polish sausages cut into 1″ pieces for last 30 minutes.

    Next time I will line cooking sheets with foil to make cleanup simpler.

    A real keeper!!

    I had a beet that was wasting away in the fridge and a lonely turnip too. So I added them and 2 large carrots, all peeled and chunked, into a baking dish. Topped with 2 Tbsp sliced butter, coated with 2 tsp dried sage, half tsp rosemary, salt & pepper. After 1 hour in the oven, stirred, splashed with apple cider vinegar, and served. Very satisfying, and a nice accompaniment to roast chicken. Thanks for sharing!
