Carrot Cabbage Slaw with orange dressingI didn’t get to the gym today (not that I’m particularly stressed about it). But tonight I’ll make up for the missed workout by making carrot cabbage slaw. It’s not a diet thing is a fitness goal thing. (I can only do five wiggly push ups and I want to get to eight, not wiggly ones.) Grating carrots by hand will work my right arm. So will slicing the cabbage. So I’ll get half a workout in. And of course my fork is in my left hand…

Carrot cabbage slaw with orange molasses dressing

  • 3 cups grated carrots 3 cups thinly-sliced red cabbage
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or toasted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley or cilantro
  • 1/3 cup currants.

Toss with this basic dressing:

Orange dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. cumin (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. Grandma Fancy Molasses
  • 2/3 cup oil (half olive oil, half walnut oil if you have it)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Put all ingredients, except oil, in a mason jar and give it a good shake. Make sure the Dijon is well incorporated then add the oil and give it another shake. Or you can stir it together in a bowl, in the same sequence.

Before serving, squeeze half a lemon over the slaw and add the zest of one lemon.
