Tangy Cabbage Salad; No Assistance Required — 11 Comments

  1. Katie, I laughed out LOUD at the line about taking your computer for a walk. You crack me up on a regular basis but that one really had me laughing like a loon all by myself in the kitchen!

  2. Oh this made me laugh! I can just see the guy, examining your camera, wondering what the heck you were doing walking around with your computer. Too funny! πŸ™‚
    I’m a HUGE fan of coleslaw, as long as it isn’t smothered in mayonnaise dressing. This recipe looks great! I’ve never looked for celery seed in France. Is it readily available?

  3. Love the irony of Stonehenge as background on your computer, sort of like the old and the new. So what’s wrong with taking computers for a walk? We all need more exercise, carrying a computer would be excellent for the heart. So glad you scaled down the recipe, no way I could eat that much cabbage!

  4. I’m always on the lookout for a new cabbage slaw recipe! I can’t stand that mayonnaise-laden stuff (except for grandma’s, of course). This sounds great! And I especially love that it stays crunchy! I normally won’t eat the stuff after it’s been in the fridge for a while…too soggy!!

  5. This so reminds me of the coleslaw I grew up with that my grandma made. Well, minus the mustard and celery seed; we didn’t go in for “strong flavors.” πŸ™‚ Thank goodness I eventually discovered the world of flavor!
    What’s funny is that as a kid I didn’t like this coleslaw because it was too sweet for me. Which was fine, my mom was perfectly happy to have me eat the cabbage plain. But now, I think I’d like to try it again, especially your recipe with the extra “flavors.”

  6. The computer picture looks like patchwork πŸ˜€
    Maybe if we took our computers on a walk every day they would be nicer to us ;D
    I never use raw cabbage for a salad… there’s something in its taste that I’m not fan of. Thanks for sharing, though.

  7. Zoomie, glad I made you smile
    Loulou, I have found it once, in Paris, but you can get celery powder, which gives the flavor… but not the texture or appearance.
    Neil, I was so surprised that the geek didn’t recognize it for what it was… I’ve been walking both computers far too often this week!
    Michelle, I make the creamy kind with yogurt… but I like this one better… I’m so glad I found it!
    Lulu, I thinkg the mustard cuts the sweetness a bit..
    Nuria, it was actually, kind of pretty~

  8. Oh, how we laughed!! I can well imagine the computer guy poring over your camera while nervously trying to ignore the fact that you just lile carring a computer around with you πŸ™‚ And I spluttered in recognition at that line of “you never know what might make an interesting post” – 100% true and the reason for some very odd photos on my memory card!
    The coleslaw dressing sounds very similar to one I make for a courgette salad – and the salad looks heavenly – thanks πŸ™‚

  9. Nate, an underused herb (I think it would be an herb)
    Jeanne, some very bizarre ones on mine, as well! And so many of the same thing. Thank God for digital!
