"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

4-5 carrots, grated
4-5 apples, chopped
1 cup purple cabbage

unsweetened coconut or feta
raisins or dried cranberries
sunflower seeds (toasted) or almonds (toasted)


1/3 c. mayonnaise
1/3 c. yogurt or sour cream (can be left out for a non-dairy option, just use more mayo)
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar (coconut-infused is very nice)
salt and pepper

Build salad to your taste. We recommend the coconut/raisin/sunflower seed option. Add dressing, a little at a time, to taste. Play around with the flavour of the dressing, we like a little more vinegar for a bit of bite. This is a very fresh and beautiful fall slaw.
