Cole Slaw Recipe

1 head of green cabbage sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup lemon juice
1 to 2 teaspoons honey
3/4 cup oil
Sesame Salt to taste

Shred the cabbage as finely as possible to release most of the juices (which is so important if you want to make the best tasting cole slaw). A good shredding method is to cut the cabbage head in quarters — lengthwise from the core to the top — and remove the core. Then shred lengthwise with a very sharp knife, as thinly as possible. Sprinkle the shredded cabbage with salt and pepper. Blend the lemon juice, honey, and oil, and pour this dressing over the slaw. Toss well, and add sesame salt upon serving.

As a variation, use red cabbage and add 2/3 cup of white seedless raisins. Or add 1 cup of grated apple for each cup of green cabbage, and dress with yogurt dressing (recipe to follow). Yields 6 to 8 cups.
