Witches and Slaw

Did you know you can make a slaw-witch? We have a fun recipe  and photos for you for this month of October - straight from our new book, Holiday Secrets.

Witch's Slaw

Ingredients:

1 cup shredded carrots

1 cup shredded purple cabbage plus one leaf for hats

3 cups shredded cabbage

1 red apple, cored and shredded; shred this last and mix quickly with the vinegar so it does not turn brown (we left the peel on for nutrients and color)

1 cup light vanilla yogurt

1 tablespoon vinegar

 

 

 

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

2. Chill until ready to serve. For fun with older kids, you can garnish each serving with a witch's hat or plastic spider.

How to make a witch's hat:

1. Microwave a piece of cabbage for 20-30 seconds so it becomes pliable.

2. Cut it into strips.

3. Roll each strip into the shape of a hat (see photos).

Cabbage Varieties

Four types of cabbage are commonly found at the grocery store:

• Green cabbage – Pale green head of cabbage with a white center.

• Red cabbage – This looks like green cabbage, except for its vibrant color.

• Savoy cabbage – This variety sports crinkled leaves with a mild flavor.

• Napa cabbage – Several varieties fall into this category. These mild-flavored cabbages are long, oval-shaped bunches of pale green leaves.

Tips for Using Cabbage

• Cabbage is great in winter salads! Put together a coleslaw, or mix cabbage shreds with other greens.

• Go for some crunch! Think of places you normally use lettuce – sand- wiches, tacos, salads – and use shredded cabbage instead.

• Hollowed cabbages make festive serving bowls for dips and salads.
