Hint-of-Curry Cole Slaw

A bit of curry powder elevates this cole slaw to a new dimension.  That inspiration came from perusing the Joy of Cooking, published circa 1939, in search of my mother’s cole slaw recipe.  While I haven’t been able to recreate hers exactly, this Indian twist on a classic American dish is now a favorite with my family.



Ingredients:

1 medium head of savoy cabbage, or cabbage(s) of choice, chopped


Dressing:

2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Mirin Sweet Cooking Rice Wine
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly-ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 shallot, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lemon, or lime

Garnishes:

Your choice:  toasted sesame seeds, almond slivers, etc.

Directions:

1.  Put the chopped cabbage in a large bowl.


2.  In another bowl, make the dressing by mixing the mayonnaise, Mirin, salt, pepper, curry powder, shallot, garlic, and the fresh lemon or lime juice.

3.  Add the dressing to coat the slaw.  Toss well.  Taste for seasonings.

4.  Add your choice of almonds, sesame seeds, etc. and toss.

Makes 6 side dishes.
