A new recipe with using this week’s Kale and Cabbage—submitted by CSA Member Jamie Trudel!

Spicy Coleslaw with Cumin-Lime Dressing
Note from Jamie: I halved the onion and it was plenty and I thought I had cumin, but I didn’t so I subbed in some cayenne and pepper flakes and it was yummers!

Slaw:
3 medium carrots, peeled, finely chopped
6 cups shredded green cabbage (from 1 small head)
1 red bell pepper, cut into matchstick-size strips
1 red onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Dressing:
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Cook carrots in medium saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain. Cool completely. Transfer carrots to large bowl. Add cabbage,bell pepper, onion and cilantro.
  2. Whisk lime juice, cumin, garlic and hot pepper sauce in medium bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Season with salt and pepper. (Cabbage mixture and dressing can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover separately; chill. Rewhisk dressing before continuing.)
  3. Toss salad with enough dressing to coat. Season with salt and pepper; serve.
