Nutritionist Corner Recipe: Strawberry Slaw
Posted Jun 1st, 2015
1 head of green cabbage, about 6 cups
2 cups red grapes, halved
1/3 cup Clearly Organic Olive Oil
1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
1 small shallot, chopped
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1 pint strawberries, sliced
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
In a large mixing bowl add chopped cabbage and sliced grapes. Prepare dressing by adding oil, vinegar, chopped shallot, dry mustard, sugar and poppy seeds to a blender. Blend the mixture until it has a salad dressing consistency. Pour dressing over cabbage and grapes and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Cabbage will wilt as the dressing marinates with the fruits and vegetables. Just before serving stir in sliced strawberries and sunflower seeds.
If you are looking to cut down on your preparation time you could purchase pre-chopped cabbage and bottled poppy seed dressing. This recipe is also great with sliced pecans, almonds or cashews.
