Carrot Cabbage Slaw with Cumin Vinaigrette

I am not sure where my autumn breeze went! The Fall season was teasing me. No matter, it is Fall and this is a perfect Fall salad recipe. This is a wonderful crisp cabbage, carrot slaw scented with cumin.  A low fat, low calorie and high-fiber dish.



Carrot Cabbage Slaw with Cumin Vinaigrette
(serves 6)
Note: Recipe from Gourmet
Ingredients:
2-1/4 lb. carrots
2 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
1 Tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted ( note: I  used dried cumin)
6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 lb Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced ( about 6 cups)

Equipment:
An adjustable blade slicer fitted with 1/8 inch julienne attachment

Directions:
1. Pick enough fronds from the carrot tops to measure 1 cup, then coarsely chop.
2. Cut carrots crosswise into 2-inch pieces, then julienne with a slicer.
3. Whisk together vinegar, brown sugar, cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper in a bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
4. Toss cabbage, carrots, chopped carrot tops in a large bowl with enough vinaigrette to coat.
5. Season with salt and pepper.
6. Let stand 30 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

This is really unique - very interesting, and a great way to work more carrots into the diet.

A delightful slaw! That vinaigrette must taste wonderful!

Unfortunately, the last Gourmet Magazine will be released in November.... Apparently, the entire staff of 180 was let go and they had to be cleared out by the end of the week!

Cheers,

Rosa

This looks wonderful. I love the cumin vinaigrette! Thanks for posting it.

I'm shocked to hear that Gourmet is folding. What a loss.

Claudia said...

I love carrot slaw and the cumin vaaigrette just turns it into fall. (Our autumn is freezing and rainy). I am also mourning Gourmet.

Palidor said...

Such a colorful dish! I love that you used cumin in the vinaigrette. Simply wonderful.

Such a beautiful photo of your slaw- including the leafy dish! I bet the cumin vinaigrette is wonderful with it.

What an interesting idea to use cumin in the vinaigrette. We have a bunch of cabbage in the refrigerator we were looking for something different to do with.

Katy ~ said...

Yum yum I love slaws. Cumin with cabbage is a new one to me, but it sounds good. Will add this to my stash. I like that this has no mayo, very important as we have an allergic-to-everything kid, and this would be a winner for her.

Very nice dish, and I mean that both ways - the receptacle and the great looking slaw! Perfect for Fall....which by the way, appears to have skipped by Tallahassee. Arrgh!

I'm surprised with the addition of cumin in this dish. It is one of my favorite spices, and I use it in several dishes, but never tried it with these vegetables. Must try it. and thank you for such a healthy dish. As the season of cabbage and caroot is approaching here, this will be on my top list to try soon.
