A fresh-tasting and delicious slaw using ingredients that are often abundant during the year in BC, especially in the winter and early spring when you’re craving something crisp.
Yield: Serves 4 – 5
Preparation Time: About 20 minutes
- ½ lemon squeezed into 2 cups (500mL) water
- 1 apple
- 2 cups (500mL) cabbage (wedge of red or green cabbage), shredded
- ½ cup (125mL) grated carrot (about 1 carrot)
- 1 green onion, sliced thinly
- 1 Tbsp (15mL) fresh dill
- ¼ cup (50mL) raisins
- ¼ cup (50mL) sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
- 3 Tbsp (45mL) cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp (15mL) olive oil
- 1 Tbsp (15mL) water
- 1 tsp (10mL) honey
- ½ tsp (2mL) Dijon mustard
- pinch of salt and pepper
- cutting board
- small sharp knife
- juicer or reamer
- melon baller
- box grater
- measuring cups and spoons
- jar with tight fitting lid
- small-sized bowl
- large bowl
- large spoon
- Squeeze the lemon into water in a medium-sized bowl.
- Cut apples in half. Remove core with a melon baller. Cut apples into half again then thinly slice each quarter. Add to the bowl with lemon water. (This will stop the apples from browning.)
- Thinly slice a wedge of cabbage (or grate on a box grater). Place in a large-sized bowl.
- Grate the carrot on the large holes of a box grater. Add to the cabbage.
- Thinly slice the green onion. Add to the cabbage bowl.
- Tear the leaves of a few sprigs of fresh dill and add to the cabbage bowl. Mix together.
- Measure the cider vinegar, olive oil, water, honey, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper into a jar with a tight filling lid. Screw the lid on tightly. Shake the dressing. You can also whisk the ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture. Add the raisins and sunflower seeds.
- Pour the apples and water into a colander place in a sink. Drain well. Add to the other ingredients.
- Toss the ingredients together. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.

Gather your ingredients. The carrot is missing from the photo, but not from the slaw! We substituted a handful of chives from the garden for the green onion. Use what you’ve got! No fresh dill? Substitute with a pinch of dried in the dressing.
