Recipe: Caraway Cabbage Salad

Slaws have a bad rap for being a messy mayo-filled BBQ staple but we’re on a mission to resuscitate the slaw’s reputation and give it the good name it deserves.  This one here is full of good for you ingredients.  That hit of caraway seeds in the dressing is what really gives this meal a makeover.  Bring this slaw to your summer BBQ and it will certainly re-set the standard for feel good food.

Caraway Cabbage Salad 

Servings: 4
Time: 10 minutes
  • 1/2 Cabbage (any kind), shredded
  • 1 apple, sliced in match-sticks OR 1 cup fresh figs, sliced
  • ¼ cup black sesame seeds or sliced almonds (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow raisins of dried cranberries

Sweet + Spicy Cider Dressing

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • salt & pepper, to taste


Thinly slice the cabbage and apples/figs.  Using a madolin will greatly help as it can be hard to get the cabbage paper thin (you can also buy prechopped cabbage.  We do that!).

*NOTE: The thinner it is the better it will taste and the easier it will be to eat.

In a separate bowl (or jar) combine the ingredients for the dressing.  Mix very well to combine.

Pour as much of the dressing as you like over the salad mix then toss thoroughly.  (save the rest of the dressing for future use on grains, greens or as a marinade) Garnish with nuts/seeds and dried fruit.

***In the winter you could sauté the cabbage and serve this warm!***
