Recipe: Apple Slaw

Sonny’s slaw is a time-honored tradition and balances our meats and sauces with a cool refreshing finish. This recipe adds some fun new flavors to incorporate a bit more sweetness and zip that pairs well with smoked meats.

You Will Need:


  • ½ cup mayonnaise 
  • ¼ cup sour cream 
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 teaspoon mustard 
  • 1 teaspoon poppyseeds 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper 
  • ½ teaspoon salt 


  • 1 head cabbage, shredded 
  • ¼ cup Kosher Salt 
  • 1 Red Apple, unpeeled, cored and cut into matchsticks 
  • 1 Green Apple, unpeeled, cored and cut into matchsticks 
  • ½ cup shredded carrots 
  • 4 finely chopped green onions 
  • ½ cup sliced almonds 


Whisk all the dressing ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 3 days in advance. 

Toss the cabbage with ¼ cup kosher salt and set in a colander over a bowl for at least 30 minutes, tossing occasionally, to draw out some of the moisture from the cabbage. Rinse well and pat dry. 

Combine the drained cabbage, apples, carrots and almonds. Pour dressing over slaw. Toss until evenly coated.
