Here is the easiest slaw ever! With the help of my Oxo mandoline slicer and my cool julienne slicer, making this healthy, crunchy, delicious cabbage slaw is a cinch. My Cuisinart tends to pulverize rather than shred, so when a very thin slice or shredding vegetables is required, I prefer to use my mandoline. It's a tool I find myself using quite frequently these days.
The recipe here is a simple one - red cabbage, some onion (I like a combo of red and green onion), carrot, celery, a few golden raisins to add a little sweetness, and a vinaigrette dressing. Aside from the carrot, where I prefer to use the julienne slicer, all of the vegetables can be shredded on the mandoline in a flash. If I'd had it on hand, I would also add either some fennel, or jicama for even more crunch.
1/4 head cabbage, shredded
1 stalk celery, finely sliced
1 carrot, julienne
2 T. golden raisins
1/4 c. red onion, very finely sliced
1-2 green onions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. sugar or 2 tsp. honey
2 T. rice, cider or red wine vinegar
1 tsp. light salad oil
Oh so simple and fast!
