Moroccan Carrot and Cabbage Salad

Moroccan Carrot and Cabbage Salad

This exotic version of slaw has more good-for-you antioxidants, fiber, and iron than the usual kind–and lots more flavor, too! Tangy, spicy, and appealing, this Moroccan-style salad is perfect for cookouts, potlucks, barbecues, and more.

Use a food processor to make shredding the veggies a snap.


1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 to 5 cups shredded green cabbage, about 1 head
3 medium carrots, shredded
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, scallions, and cumin.

2. Add cabbage and carrots and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serves 8.

Is it the cumin that makes it "Moroccan"? because otherwise it's coleslaw.
