Pita Pockets with Cabbage Apple Slaw and Green Chile Dressing

Pita Pockets with Cabbage Apple Slaw and Green Chile Dressing

This cabbage apple slaw pita pocket is a recipe I’ve been making for decades with little changes here and there for variety.  The most recent change was the addition of green chile dressing.  This dressing is made with homemade mayonnaise (recipe below), Dijon type mustard, and a generous  amount of green chile spice mix.  The green chile mix adds a bit of a bite to the slaw as well as the delectable flavor of green chile.  So good!

The slaw is relatively simple – cabbage, apple, carrot, toasted nuts or seeds, and one favorite slaw ingredients – pickle.  I even add a little pickle brine to the dressing.  When you use the cabbage apple slaw for pita pockets you get a light and refreshing summer lunch or supper, and an easy camping meal. And you could forego the pita altogether and just use the slaw as a side for barbecue.  No matter how you serve it or when, this cabbage apple slaw with green chile dressing is a winner.
