Fast, Easy, Affordable Weeknight Meal: Chicken Sausages With Slaw Recipe

Monday's Leftovers: Chicken Sausages With Cabbage Slaw


After last night's rustic Italian-influenced bean stew, switch gears and serve your leftover chicken sausage with a light, bright cabbage and apple slaw. Unlike mayonnaise-based or even Asian-themed coleslaws, this one combines a bit of cider vinegar (for tang), buttermilk (for creaminess), and apples (for texture) to produce a sweet-tart, crunchy salad that foils the richness of a pan-fried sausage. For the recipe, read on.

Ingredients

  1. 3/4 pound green cabbage, thinly sliced (3 cups)
  2. 2 apples, such as granny smith and mcintosh, cut into matchsticks

  4. 1/4 cup buttermilk
  5. 4 teaspoons grainy mustard
  6. 2 teaspoons sugar
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  9. 4 fully cooked chicken sausage links (about 9 ounces), halved lengthwise

Directions
