Warm coleslaw with honey dressing

Dietitian's tip:

Cabbage is a healthy cruciferous vegetable. For this slaw, sliced vegetables are quickly stir-fried, then tossed in a warm dressing.

Number of servings

Serves 6

Ingredients

  1. 6 teaspoons olive oil
  2. 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  4. 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into julienne
  5. 1/2 head napa cabbage, cored and thinly sliced crosswise (about 5 cups)
  6. 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  7. 1 tablespoon dark honey
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  10. 1/2 teaspoon caraway seed
  11. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley

Directions

In a large nonstick saute pan, heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and mustard and saute until the onion is soft and lightly golden, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 more teaspoons of the olive oil to the pan. Add the carrot and toss and stir constantly until the carrot is tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the onion.

Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan over medium heat. Add the cabbage and toss and stir constantly until the cabbage just begins to wilt, about 3 minutes. Quickly transfer the cabbage to the bowl with the other vegetables.

Quickly add the vinegar and honey to the pan over medium heat, stirring until combined and bubbly and the honey is dissolved. Pour over the slaw. Add the salt and pepper and toss well. Garnish with the caraway seed and parsley and serve warm.
