Q: I stopped to pick up lunch from Alon's [Virginia-Highland location] — lump crab cakes, polenta and a delicious Green Apple Coleslaw. It was shredded cabbage, carrot, red onion and very thinly sliced green apples (maybe Granny Smith) with a very light dressing. Would it be possible to get that recipe? Thanks. — Annette Wade, Atlanta

A: Alon Balshan sent us the recipe for his Green Apple Coleslaw, a vegetable mixture just as Wade described it with a dressing made light and tangy with the combination of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and Dijon mustard.
