Crisp Poppyseed Apple Raisin Coleslaw, w/ purple cabbage, carrots, Granny Smith apples, & raisins, is tossed with poppyseed dressing, and served cold.
Place raisins in a medium bowl; cover completely with boiling water. Let sit, undisturbed, while you prep other ingredients (about 10 minutes). When done, place raisins in a strainer to drain.
Grate cabbage into a large bowl. Slice and chop peeled carrot into small bite-sized pieces. Do the same with the apple, BUT LEAVE THE PEEL ON.
Add apples, carrots and raisins to slaw. Pour poppyseed dressing over coleslaw; toss gently to coat ingredients.
Cover bowl, and refrigerate coleslaw for at least 1 hour, or until well-chilled, for best flavor. This is best served cold; you can chill it for up to 6 hours. To serve, give coleslaw a quick stir, transfer to a serving bowl (if desired), and dish it up. Enjoy! Cover/refrigerate leftovers for up to 2-3 days.
