Coleslaw With Carrot Turmeric Dressing

By Esther Boateng

Turn your plate of veggies into a nutritional powerhouse with warming spices like turmeric and a splash of cumin seed oil. I’m a huge fan of classic creamy coleslaw, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up with this slightly sweet and spicy version. For extra heat, mix in additional Pepper Salt or a small amount of freshly grated ginger. Any freshly squeezed citrus fruit works: lemon, lime, orange juice, or even grapefruit, although you might need extra sweetener if you use the latter.

Raw honey or maple syrup is optional, but I find it helps to balance the flavors and adds a delicious subtle sweetness. Whether you eat this coleslaw on the same day or the day after, it tastes amazing, especially when topped with almonds or warm toasted pine nuts.  Turn this side into a quick supper by adding a protein such as shredded rotisserie chicken or grilled bacon.

Serves up to 4
