Sweet ‘n Sour Cole Slaw

May 28, 2008 at 2:17 am 16 comments

We made this for the fist time with our friends in Cambria, CA…and we all LOVED it! This would be a great dish to take to a potluck…it doesn’t scream “RAW” πŸ™‚ But it is amazingly tasty and addictive. I kept going back for more. There is just something about the mixture of sweet and sour that I love.

Sweet ‘n Sour Cole Slaw
Living on Live Foods by Alissa Cohen

Serves 2-3

1 medium cabbage, shredded (I used green and red to make it pretty)
2 large carrots, shredded
1/3 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
1/3 cup olive oil (I always try to cut the oil by half if your tastes will allow)
1 T honey
3 T apple cider vinegar
1/2 t sea salt
Pinch of allspice
1/2 cup raisins

Place the cabbage, carrots, and apricots in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients except the raisins and pour over the cabbage mixture. Cover and let sit for 1 hour. This is an important step…as it will help soften the cabbage a bit. Mix in raisins just before serving.

    Do you use Raw Honey?
    Or just the regular?? πŸ™‚

    I use raw honey…but either would work.

    I so appreciate all the recipes you post! Most of them I have tried have become keepers. You have inspired me to share more recipes on my blog as well. I just posted two raw salads that I love tonight and since I think that our taste buds like similar tastes, I want to invite you to check them out! You can let me know if my assumption is right! Peace!

    I had all the ingredients on hand so I made this last night. I’m eating it for lunch right now and it’s delicious! Thank you! I have been drinking green smoothies for a couple of months now and am trying to go more and more raw. I have never been healthier and I can’t stop talking about how this change has affected me.
    I am fairly new to your blogs and I have been totally inspired by them. I can’t stop reading your archives. I live in Ankeny so I am even more inspired knowing you lived in Des Moines. I wish I could talk my husband into doing what you are doing!
    Thanks for putting yourself out there!

    I made this last night, and boy was it yummy!
    Even better today when I had some leftover for lunch πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing!

    I made this the other night and it was delicious. It looked and tasted delicious! Thanks

    Your recipes and food pirctures look so yummy! I have a question….We don’t have a health food store close by and I don’t like to order online, can I use the packaged nuts from the grocerey store (usually found in the baking aisle) in place of the raw nuts called for in your recipes?

    I’m going to try this out for my birthday party on Friday. Thanks for sharing! Sara, would it be okay if I post the recipe on my blog with credit and a link to you? πŸ™‚ Thanks, Carrie from San Antonio

    When I brought this lovely salad to the table tonight the eyebrows around the table raised skeptically (my kids are non-slaw-eaters). My husband and I enjoyed large helpings and the kids politely took small dollops. They took a bite and smiled wide. “This is really good!” they chimed, and helped themselves to more. Bravo! This is a GREAT recipe and SO EASY. Thanks Sara. : )

    The best thing about this slaw is that it only gets better after a day or two in the fridge. All the flavors mix & mingle — yum. I used apples instead of apricots and added beets — it was great.

    I’m new to this blog — thanks for being a great resource for us out here!

    Can I use sugar instead of the honey. If so, how much sugar??

    Good way of describing, and pleasant piece of writing to obtain data concerning my presentation focus,
    which i am going to present in university.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
