Carrot cabbage slaw with greens
Carrot cabbage slaw is one of my favourite salads that I keep reinventing. This variation includes greens, either beet greens or chard (two of my favourites) but not only the leafy part. I love the crunch of finely-diced stems so toss them in too.
In a good sized bowl combine the following:
2T cider vinegar or white wine vinegar (or your current favourite)
1 1/2 T maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 t salt
Before serving, squeeze half a lemon over the slaw and add the zest of one lemon. (Hint: zest before squeezing - it's much easier.)
Walnuts are yummy sprinkled over too.
Adding 1/3 cup currants (softened for a bit in the lemon juice) is another great addition.
