who doesn’t like cabbage? lemon coleslaw

This past long weekend, I made 2 different cabbage salads. The recipe below, I made as a side for some baked cornmeal-crusted fish and some oven baked fries. The other cabbage salad, I took to a picnic. I certainly can’t pick a favourite since I love pretty much any cabbage salad put in front of me, but since the lemon coleslaw recipe was new to me, it’s the one I’ll post here.

The recipe as posted is directly from the Gourmet Cookbook. However, in my own kitchen, I made a few alterations, of course. I didn’t have any sour cream, so I just skipped it. I also didn’t add the sugar because I feel that low fat mayo already has WAY too much sugar for my own liking. I did add a dash of cider vinegar because I do like a zesty slaw but didn’t add the extra water. Water? Why? Regardless, it was a really tasty salad and I ate up the leftovers with a buttery english muffin the next day.

    I love cabbage…though I do prefer it raw, still crunchy. I always add purple (why is it called red?) cabbage to my green salads…it just adds another dimention. I am certainly going to try your recipe.

    hag, i agree about raw cabbage…it’s way better than cooked, but i do have a soft spot for pretty much any kind of cabbage! it must be my peasant roots 🙂

    rachel, this isn’t the most tangy coleslaw, but it is quite nice and definitely lemony!

    jenn, raw cabbage is the best, for sure!

    okay, now I can’t decide between this or the feta-lime cabbage slaw recipe. Mmmm…it is for a potluck dinner so either would be good!
