Cole Slaw with lemon Tahini Dressing*


A big pile of chopped cabbage.    (That’s all, if you want).

(And / or other greens – but then you might not be able to call it "cole slaw").


Optional:   Cut up some apple, toss the pieces with lemon juice (to keep them from browning, and add.

Optional:    Add some whole or chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds – whatever).  

Optional:    You can add grated carrots for traditional cole slaw if you want.


Mix together:

Some Tahini (not too much – has a lot of oil).   Or use "Low Fat Tahini."

Some lemon juice:  fresh (ideally) or bottled

Combine these ingredients in a small jar with a lid.  It's easier to mix them by shaking the jar. 

Fresh ground pepper

Optional:   some garlic powder 

Wait until soon before serving to toss the cabbage with the dressing, if possible.    Mix it up with a little of the dressing at a time so you don’t over-do it.
