A terrific alternative to traditional cole slaw. It's crisp, crunchy, a little sweet and delicious!!! And, much healthier than traditional cole slaw.
The recipe makes a lot. You may want to cut in 1/2. Also...I find that doubling the dressing is good. That way, I pour on half and have some left on the side for folks to add if they like. on 11/16/2009
1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons light sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt, preferably sea or kosher, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 medium cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (about 8 cups)
4 apples (any variety), cored, peeled and cut into matchsticks
3 medium carrots, peeled and coarsely grated (about 2 1/2 cups)
2 celery stalks, cut into matchsticks
4 ounces Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, grated (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1. To make dressing: In blender, combine vinegar, sesame oil, honey, mustard, soy sauce and cinnamon; blend until smooth. While blender is running, slowly add olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
2. To make salad: In large bowl, combine all salad ingredients. Add enough dressing to coat salad well and toss together until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
