Sweet winter slaw

Page 102, Ottolenghi


A quick lunch with friends was the perfect occasion for this sweet winter slaw and some bbq tofu sandwiches. The slaw had a surprising dressing instruction – Ottolenghi has you boil the maple syrup, sesame oil, and lime juice, with some chopped lemongrass, and then once it is cool, you strain it and add the oil to finish the dressing. Add that to the chopped red cabbage, savoy cabbage, and mango strips – chop up some cilantro and mint and BOOM – deliciousness. I definitely strayed off on my own, leaving out the sugared macadamia nuts that he calls for, but I knew those would not be a hit in this house. The slaw though? Big hit, indeed.
