This is draft #1 for the CHOW Recipe Lab: Coleslaw. Try it and post your comments to this thread.

Coleslaw is the classic summer cookout accompaniment but it’s all too often too sweet, too soupy, or too thick. This version has all the classic flavors you’d expect with a couple new twists to keep things interesting. Help us perfect this piece of Americana by tasting it out and giving us your feedback.

Game plan: Making this recipe is a snap with the help of a food processor. If you don’t have one just slice the vegetables and apple into 1/4-inch thick slices then crosswise into small pieces.
