One summer staple that all the farmers and staff at Stone Barns love is a slaw. You can mix in pretty much any ingredient you like, kohlrabi, raddish, fresh herbs, cucumbers, corn…but we particularly love the classic combo of cabbage and carrots.
Crisp, sweet and refreshing, these crops are the perfect pair for a seasonal slaw!
Use the amounts listed below, or, just use what you have to create the ratio of cabbage to carrot that you like—you can’t go wrong.
- 1 head napa cabbage, shredded
- 1 bunch spring carrots (the baby ones you’ll find at the Farm Market), shredded
- 1/4 cup fresh spearmint, chopped (substitute cilantro or basil)
- 1/2 cup almonds, sliced (optional)
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon honey (or to taste)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Mix together slaw ingredients in a large bowl.
Shake dressing ingredients together in a lidded jar, or whisk well in a bowl.
Pour dressing over slaw in thirds, tasting as you go to get the right mix, toss and serve.
