How do you like that alliteration? Eh? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. This slaw is just the ticket after an indulgent weekend with a strong Aziz Ansari theme. I accidentally watched the entire season of Master of None on Netflix on Saturday (it’s that good), and plowed through two-thirds of Modern Romance last night.
Mind you, I took some breaks to take bites of this amazing chocolate pie thing I’ve been working on for my cookbook. And sure, I probably should have been writing my book all weekend, but then what would we talk about today? The weather? I did that last week.
Let’s talk about this slaw. It’s proof that sometimes, the most humble of ingredients can make for the best recipes. Take cheap cabbage, with all of its potent antioxidants, and toss it with carrots and a simple, garlicky lemon dressing. Add some freshly toasted seeds to the mix (toasting them makes all the difference!) and you have a colorful coleslaw that’s bursting with fresh flavor and amazing health benefits.
