Granny's Apple Cole Slaw

This is my version of Wolfgang Puck's Apple Cole Slaw.  It took me about 15 minutes to put together, needs about an hour in the fridge before serving, and if you 'like' cole slaw you will LOVE it!!! 


1 cup mayo
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar or 2 Tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. poppy seeds
dash of pepper, paprika, and salt
1 Tbsp. brown or yellow mustard
(Mix these together and put into the fridge while you cut your apples)

2-3 Granny Smith apples sliced and cut into matchsticks
1 bag of cole slaw mix
1/4 cup raisins
1 cup sweet corn
 (mix these in and put into the fridge for about an hour before serving)

Stir in nuts of your choice before serving.  I used honey roasted and sliced almonds!  Have a very Happy Fourth of July, everyone :)
