Minty Cabbage Slaw
by Cheryl L. McClure
They didn’t get large and as spring approached I noticed that something started to nibble on one of them so I decided it was time to go ahead and harvest. I cut the large loose leaves off and fed them to the cows. Have you heard the phrase “how the cow ate the cabbage”? Well, they LOVE cabbage!! When they see me with cabbage they come bounding across the pasture to get a bite. And they eat it with a vengeance!
- 4-5 cups sliced cabbage
- 2 cups shredded carrots (3 large carrots from Trader Joe’s worked. Each one was a different color - purple, orange and yellow)
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions (4 large green onions)
- 1/2 chopped fresh mint
- 1/2 cup regular mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 drops Lemon essential oil (I only use this kind)
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. JuvaSpice® (you can find here)
Wash and slice cabbage to make 4 - 5 cups. Grate carrots to make 2 cups shredded carrots. It took three large carrots to do this. Chop or slice green onions to make a half cup. I had 4 large green onions for this. Then chop enough fresh mint to make half a cup. Combine all together.
Whisk the dressing ingredients mayo, lemon juice, lemon essential oil, sugar, ground cumin and JuvaSpice. You can always change it up and use an alternative sweetener or additional spices.
Combine all together for a large salad but if you want to only use half, store the salad mixture separate from the dressing and it will stay fresh longer. You might even want to store the mint separately tool and add it in when you’re ready to serve.
I'm sure you will find this a pleasant dining experience if you have not ever tried it before!! It's good as a salad alone or topped with grilled chicken.
Happy dining, gardening and oiling!!
