I hope you had a wonderful first full weekend of Fall.  I was thrilled when the weather Saturday night and into Sunday dropped enough for us to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air.  As for other highlights this weekend I of course watched a lot of football and attended a friends birthday party and brought this Queso Dip which was a hit.  I shared a photo of it on my Instagram Stories.  I also ran many errands and did a lot of much needed shopping.  You know when it seems like your household runs out of everything all at once, yea that’s how I felt all last week.  Trips to Target, Safeway, Petco, Lowes, and hundreds of dollars later I feel like our house is back up and running smoothly again.

As for workouts this past weekend I did a treadmill interval workout on Saturday followed by a Body Pump class.  There was a substitute instructor for the class and I try not to let that affect me, but I was definitely having a hard time feeling motivated because of the change.  But I made it through and felt strong afterwards.  On Sunday I was so happy to wake up early and enjoy a run in the cool Fall weather followed by some yoga with the windows open and breeze coming through, perfect start to the day!

Since the weekend wasn’t too exciting, today I decided to link up with a few of my favorite bloggers Ellen from My Uncommon Everyday Life, Priya from Masala Girl Travles, and Kayla from Blondes have more Run, in an Autumn Produce Challenge.  Each week we will share our favorite recipes featuring that weeks seasonal ingredient.  This week the ingredient was apples.  It’s so easy to forget that it’s apple season when everyone is going crazy over pumpkin everything, but I sure don’t.  I eat apple slices everyday and occasionally cook or bake with them.  I’m actually not a huge fan of baking with apples, even though my mom makes THE most amazing apple pie and I have many apple desserts on my Pinterest Boards.  I actually prefer adding apples to salads or side dishes to naturally sweeten them.

Broccoli Slaw with Apples and Greek Yogurt Dressing

One of my favorite side dishes to make in the Fall is homemade slaws.  So today I am sharing my recipe for Broccoli Slaw with Apples and a Greek Yogurt Dressing.  The dressing is so simple and much healthier than using mayonnaise or any store bought creamy dressing.  I like to pair this slaw with BBQ or smoked chicken or pulled pork.  And this sounds strange, but it’s also delicious ON a sandwich.  Yes in between the bread, on top of the meat.  It’s so good, just trust me!  The apples are the perfect amount of sweetness and crunch to this salad.  I hope you enjoy it!

Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag broccoli slaw
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 apple chopped into bite size pieces (I used Honeycrisp, Granny Smith would be good too)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Place the broccoli slaw, scallions, and apple in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  3. Pour over the slaw, toss to coat evenly.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours up to 1 day before serving.
  5. Can stay refrigerated 2-3 days.

I love that all you need for this recipe is a set of mixing bowls and kitchen utensils.  It’s so simple to put together and the whole family will enjoy the sweet and crunchy taste!

    I seem to run out of everything at the same time too. I’m known for some pretty epic Sams Club runs.
    This salad looks amazing! Love the GY and crunch of an apple.

      I’m not a huge mayo fan either so I love slaws that use greek yogurt or just vinegar instead.

      Haha, I have yet to watch that show somehow, but I really live it with my husband being a coach. It’s crazy how much time he puts into everything for getting paid just about nothing. But some of the boys stories and how football has changed their life is truly inspiring. In real life and on TV 😉

    Yum i love slaws–my recipe for Friday is actually a fall-ish slaw! I love apple slices with caramel sauce in the fall or apples and cinnamon in oatmeal.
    I like to put potatoe chips on my sandwiches sometimes–also pickles are a must!

    I feel like I can come put of the closet about my aversion to apples now. I can’t stand them. It’s the texture. This slaw though. I’d eat that whole bowl!
