A Slew of Slaws

Red Cabbage, Carrot, and Apricot Salad

Red Cabbage, Carrot, and Apricot Salad

Here’s a nice change of pace from “white” coleslaw —  a combination of red cabbage and carrot, sweetened with dried apricots. It adds a refreshing note to spicy meals and adds vibrant color to the plate. You can use whichever fresh herbs you like, or a combination, but I think this is particularly good with cilantro.

Raw Sweet Potato and Cabbage Salad with Coconut-Lime Dressing

Raw sweet potato and cabbage salad

Sweet potato is a veggie that doesn’t immediately come to mind as one to use raw, but it’s wonderful uncooked! Combined with cabbage and some mildly Thai flavors, this easy (and rather addictive) salad is a treat all year around. See the variation of this salad using kale, which is, like sweet potato, just as good raw as it is cooked, if not better! more→
