Carrot-Apple Slaw with Acacia Honey and Orange Juice Vinaigrette

wide carrot apple slaw

Summer and coleslaw always go hand-in-hand. While the cookout staple does make for a delicious side dish, it has the potential to be packed with unhealthy ingredients. This slaw recipe takes things in a healthier direction and, thanks to the orange juice, brightens up any meal.

Savannah Bee Company’s Acacia Honey works perfectly in this dish. With its crisp, clean notes, this honey is sure to wow your guests!
