How to #testkitchen: Caraway Cole Slaw

Today in the #testkitchen is a recipe for Caraway Cole Slaw

Welcome to #testkitchen – where I find random recipes on the web worth working on 🙂 Customizing other recipes helps you to learn how to make your own to fit your nutritional needs.  


First with flavor, technique later

Things can fall apart (literally) when you start to adjust the techniques of a recipe. So start with seasoning, it’s much easier to recover in case something goes wrong.  After you make it a few times adjust the texture to your liking.

Caraway Cole Slaw



This recipe will make enough to serve 2-3 as a main dish, but don’t be alarmed if you gobble most of it up yourself, it’s that delicious! Fresh kale and purple cabbage combine with carrots, raisins or goji berries, green onion and a creamy and tangy macadamia caraway dressing. Sarahfae uses peeled and cubed zucchini to add thickness and body to the dressing without additional nuts or fats. Make this coleslaw for dinner and serve it up for lunch the next day after the flavors have marinated.
