The coleslaw's preparation is both quick and affordable. This variation on traditional recipe pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, whether it be stewed meat, fried chops, or fried eggs. The addition of horseradish lends a kick, making the sweet flavor of the carrots and the sour notes of the apple even more tantalizing.

The Nutritional Benefits of Carrot and Apple Coleslaw

Carrots and apples provide a plethora of vitamins such as A, B, and C, alongside essential minerals including potassium, phosphorus, sodium, calcium, and iron. The presence of folic acid and flavonoids is also notable, as these have anti-cancer properties.

The horseradish addition boosts the health benefits of this coleslaw even further. It's packed with antioxidants and various enzymes, including horseradish peroxidase. These substances can potentially hinder bacterial and viral growth, as well as combat diseases and inflammation due to their antioxidant properties.
